I Hope Ricky Gervais Does It

podcastRicky Gervais' blog without permalinks contained this gem yesterday.

I've had one of my big ideas. 

What do you think of this? 

A live 3 hour podcast during The Golden Globes. Me and a few chums (like Louis CK, Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John Stewart, Larry David popping in and out) doing our own alternative commentary. 

People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster could get away with.

No one could do a fucking thing.

The biggest live webcast ever? Who knows? Who cares? What's fun is the shit we might come out with. No money. No sponsor. No guide lines. Fuck me I can't wait. 

Maybe I'll do a non-broadcast practice with The Emmys to see if it works. I'll let you know.

I hope he does it. It could be amazing. It reminds me of the time Howard Stern tweeted while a local station aired Private Parts.

If Ricky did this, which audio would you choose: telecast or podcast?

The podcast is the only way I would even consider watching the telecast...so the question is kind of moot.

Brilliant!! What an idea!
Just fell in love with Louie on FX.
If anyone care my GF met Karl Pilkington at Narita airport this week, filming new show, things you must see before you die (or something like that).
God bless the aforementioned comics.

Ricky is awesome.

I would love for him to do this, but I'd probably just download the podcast afterwards. I can't watch the whole ceremony.

Ricky is on my Mount Everest of comedians.

Ricky's podcast would be hilarious! What a treat that would be. Bring it on!

Definately the podcast....Ricky really is no different than the internal dialogue that usually runs in my head during these shows anyways. I absolutely love him!!!
