David Brent: Life On The Road, le patron est de retour  

Disponible sur Netflix, le film David Brent: Life on the road ressuscite le pitoyable patron de la série culte britannique The Office. Ricky Gervais est donc de retour avec son personnage au sens de l’humour effroyable, qui tente de devenir une rock star mais qui échoue lamentablement. Sur le papier, le pari était bon. Malheureusement le rendu global souffre d’un manque de recul. La majorité de l’intrigue est centrée sur ce personnage et les situations de malaises sont exagérées.

Ricky Gervais  

Kirsty Young's castaway this week is Ricky Gervais. In just twelve episodes, his show The Office changed the face of British television comedy. At its centre was the comic monster, David Brent, a middle-manager being filmed for a mock-documentary who saw the ever-present cameras as his route to popularity and fame. Ricky Gervais's performance was both excruciating and unmissable - one critic called the programme "among the most affecting and invigorating works of fiction since the turn of the century". As he discusses with Kirsty Young, comedy was the language he grew up with - the youngest of four children, being able to come up with a gag or a smart rejoinder was the linguistic currency of his home. That, he says, is where the 'show-off performer' was born. Now with seven Baftas, two Golden Globes and an Emmy to his name, Ricky Gervais is gratified that his work is recognised and says his aim has always been to bring art into comedy.

'David Brent: Life on the Road', de nieuwe film van Ricky Gervais  

Ongemakkelijke, schurende komedie: daar heeft Rick Gervais in de veelgeprezen BBC-serie 'The Office' zichzelf groot mee gemaakt. Nu is hij terug in de rol van de narcistische manager David Brent in de film 'David Brent: Life on the Road'. Hierin gaat hij proberen zijn droom om door te breken als zanger waar te maken. De film is sinds vorige week in Nederland online te bekijken. Verslaggever Luuk Heezen keek de film met schrijver Daan Heerma van Voss - een groot Ricky Gervais-fan en -kenner, en komiek en acteur Pepijn Schoneveld.

Will Gervais - This is Your Brain on Religion  

Host: Chris Mooney

In late April, a study came out in Science that really got the secular blogosphere hopping.

It was a paper showing that something we've long suspected may be true—less critical thinking is associated with more religiosity. In fact, having a cognitive style where you're less analytic, and more intuitive, promotes faith.

And vice versa.

It turns out this paper is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we're learning about the religious mind. So to get deeper into the topic, we invited on Will Gervais, lead author of the current paper and of much other work besides.

Will Gervais is a Ph.D. candidate in social psychology at the University of British Columbia in Canada. Next year he will be an associate professor in psychology at the University of Kentucky.

His research studies the cognitive, evolutionary, and cultural reasons why people entertain in supernatural beliefs—or, why they don't, which is perhaps equally interesting.

#256: How to Overcome Anxiety and Stress - with Adviser to Olympians, Michael Gervais  

Michael Gervais (@michaelgervais) is the performance psychologist elite athletes and coaches turn to when they want to level up or when they're returning from hard times and want to not just get back to where they were, but exceed their previous highest levels of excellence. His clients include Olympic gold medalists, Super Bowl champion NFL coaches, you name it.

In this episode, we discuss how to win the war against anxiety, some of the more effective (and less effective) ways to self-talk, behind-the-scenes stories of Michael's clients, understanding the process to mastery, and much more.

This episode comes from my new television show Fear{less}, where I interview world-class performers on stage about how they've overcome doubt, conquered fear, and made their toughest decisions. You can watch the entire first episode with illusionist David Blaine for free at att.net/fearless. (To watch all episodes, please visit DIRECTV NOW.)

We recorded three hours of material and only one hour was used for the TV show. This podcast episode is almost entirely new content that didn't appear on TV.

Enjoy!
