The character that started it all — The Office and the fake interview concept for TV sitcoms — is coming back!! Ricky Gervais is bringing back David Brent for the Comic Relief fundraiser!
Red Nose Day on March 15 will be a day to mark on your calendars (as it should usually be!), as Ricky will be having David find a new career as a talent manager in the music industry, who then tries to help urban solo artist Dom Johnson get his big break. LOLz!
Here's what Ricky said: h
"I thought it was time to revisit my most famous comedy creation to find out what he's been up to for the last decade - and, most importantly, what he's up to now. He is passing on his wisdom to younger would-be rock stars now. Well, really he is trying to worm his way back into rock and roll.
"Fans of The Office will be excited to know we finally get to hear the whole of 'The Serpent Who Guards the Gates of Hell' and an amazing Brent self-funded video 'Equality Street'. Horrendous."
Two weeks is WAY TOO LONG to wait for this!
We're glad that Ricky isn't too proud to go back to his character roots — we just wish Steve Carrell would be the same way with The Office finale!
What a great idea for a great cause, Ricky! We're excited!
