Gervais: 'My Career Is Not In Jeopardy'

British funnyman RICKY GERVAIS has dismissed reports his career is in jeopardy after he was allegedly booed offstage at the Concert for Diana. The Office star took to the stage for a stand-up comedy segment at the memorial gig for late British royal Diana, Princess of Wales, at London's Wembley stadium on 1 July (07), and reports later surfaced claiming Gervais had been heckled by the audience for a poor performance. But the comedian insists the journalist got it all wrong and his career is more successful than ever before. He tells British radio station Heart FM, "After the Diana concert there was one guy - who works for a tabloid - and he wrote that the crowd booed… they didn't boo, they loved it. People love it when something goes wrong and I was standing there and they demanded I do 'the robot dance' and it was funny. "But this guy wrote, 'He's rubbish, everything he's ever done is rubbish and it's all over for him.' "That week I got nominated for four Emmy Awards, sold 100,000 DVDs of Extras and signed up for two Hollywood movies. So bring on the backlash… I want him writing about me every day."
