Gervais Entertains With Internet Podcasts

British funnyman RICKY GERVAIS is turning his hand to talk shows - as host of a weekly downloadable internet podcast.

The EXTRAS star is hailing the venture as one of its kind, because neither he nor co-host STEPHEN MERCHANT will face any censorship in the independent podcast.

And he hopes the novel project will quickly become a cult hit, although he admits the nature of the broadcast and its controversial material will restrict his audience to a select few.

He says, "I want to do a radio show where I can say what I want, when I want and that's free for anybody who can be bothered to listen.

"I suppose we are trying to create an exclusive club. We'd prefer this to be a few people's favourite show than a huge same-y, ineffectual broadcast."

The show launches on British newspaper Guardian's Unlimited website early next month (DEC05).
