Characters: The Ricky Gervais Show

Ricky Gervais

The host of his radio show.

Tropes associated with Ricky Gervais:
  • The Bully: His bullying of Karl becomes gradually more vicious as the show goes on.
  • Fat and Skinny: Fat to Stephen's skinny.
    • And talked about in great deal during one of the final podcast series, where both Steve and Karl maintain that looking at the modern Ricky and looking at images of him in his New Romantic, star of a band days in the Eighties is like looking at two different people.
    Steve: It's like one of those Weight Watchers before and after pictures, only reversed.
  • Jerkass
  • King Dedede
  • The Smart Guy: Certainly not educated to the same degree as Steve, but it's clear from just listening to Ricky that he is an incredibly intelligent guy - albeit not one incapable of slip-ups - but his level of intelligence makes him all the more hilarious when talking opposite Karl.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist
