Ricky Gervais and Jane Fallon
We`re still trying to break records on the twentieth anniversary of Live Aid. I`ve just heard Bob Geldof has put Phil Collins on a jet to Philadelphia. There`s nothing going on there, we just don`t want him around this year. No I`m joking, of course we didn`t put him on a jet. We stuck him in a catapult. To be fair, he didn`t get very far. Although it worked in rehearsals when we used it on Chris De Burgh. I could do a whole routine about injuring Phil fucking Collins.
  • He grew up in relative poverty but he has always admired his mother for the way in which she did not allow it to get in the way of a happy upbringing. She got herself into debt in order to make sure he had plenty of Christmas presents and it took her the whole of the following year to work her way out of it until Christmas beckoned again.
  • Former manager of the UK indie band Suede.
  • He has been with long term partner producer Jane Fallon since 1982.
  • Won the 2003 O.K. Comedy Award.
  • Is the youngest of four siblings.
