"It's about his life: the life of a showbiz dwarf. He plays himself, we play ourselves, it's sort of like Curb Your Enthusiasm,"



Woah, woah, what? Ricky and Steve are playing themselves? That's mental, that could be amazing. I'm thinking Karl popping up every now and again like Richard Lewis in Curb. Haha, I'm genuinely excited for this now.
No great life story, or love interest, just a dead egg.

Yeah, twisted versions of themselves?
They said somewhere else that Warwick was 'twisted'.

So, sort of Extras spinoffy.

Cannot wait.

Early days of course, but I'm loving this so far. Ricky, Steve and Wicket. Perfect.

I would love if Karl was the Richard Lewis to Warwick's Larry David.

Im still going to have to wait and see any of it before I get excited just because Ricky's said its like Curbed..after all, he did say Invention of Lying was kind of like Groundhog Day and Back to the Future.

Sounds good, but the title alone strikes fear into me a bit...

Ricky and Steve's sitcom-making track record has been quite a fair bit more reliable than Ricky's movie track record, to date so far, anyway...

Gervais & Merchant will be confined to cameo appearances in the show.

So the question remains, who WILL be on the show?

I just 'got it' randomly in the library today. Maybe they should go for something less cryptic like little non-gay fella so as not to go over the heads of mouth breathers like me...
Oh, by the way. I got the keys to your car, and I drove it into a big wall. If you don't like it, tough! I had my fun, and that's all that matters.
