Ricky Gervais Is Worth How Much???

| Filed under: Ricky Gervais



So, yesterday, sources reported that Ricky Gervais was worth $80 million. We were skeptical of this "fact" at first, having forgotten that he's got his hands in not one, but both Office franchises. Still, we weren't completely sold on the number and wanted confirmation from Ricky before we let our jaw drop in undeniable awe and jealousy.

We've just been to Ricky's blog…where he confirmed he's worth the whole bundle!

Ricky shared with the world that the figures are indeed correct, but that he's been trying to hide this fact from those who might come after him with an open palm, like his family! He explained:

"They are of course spot on. I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes. (The Inland Revenue mainly.)…I will have to get my family a million scratch cards each for Christmas. I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya."

Hey, if you throw some of it at the HFPA, they'll probably let you host the Golden Globes again.

On second thought, never mind. We don't want to open that can of worms again!!!

    I wish Eddie Izzard enjoyed such popularity in the States. He's amazing.

    You really can't tell when he's joking can you, idiot.

    I actually thought he'd be worth more than that since he created the Office, which is in syndication. PLus, he created Extras & the Ricky Gervais show. I was thinking more like $150 mill- ish

    To be honest I thought he'd be worth a lot more.. It's funny to listen to people who don't get Ricky's humor because they haven't listened to xfm or the podcasts.

    "Why don’t I believe in God? No, no no, why do YOU believe in God? Surely the burden of proof is on the believer. You started all this. If I came up to you and said, “Why don’t you believe I can fly?” You’d say, “Why would I?” I’d reply, “Because it’s a matter of faith.” If I then said, “Prove I can’t fly. Prove I can’t fly see, see, you can’t prove it can you?” You’d probably either walk away, call security or throw me out of the window and shout, ‘’F—ing fly then you lunatic.”-ricky gervais

    Deserves every penny

    One would think that with that much money, he'd have his teeth fixed…oh wait, he's British!

  14. 14

    He's taking the piss, us Brits aren't like Americans, it's a massive social faux pas to discuss money and how much you're worth. Also the tone is clearly jocular.

  15. 15

    he was joking and YOU clearly are jealous of him
    every post you make about him always has this undertone of you envying that he is so successful at bullying humor but you failed and have to be sassy instead now
