Ricky Gervais made Warwick Davis wear a frog suit for this. If I had anything funny that I could add to this, I’d be the one making this face after checking my account balance. For your viewing pleasure via YouTube:

    What a fucking asshole,

    • Capt. Obvious

      awww, poor baby. Did that hurt your widdle feewings?

      Go polish your turd hybrid and make sure your obama 2012 stickers are all shiny you metrosexual euroweenie wannabe french frog.

  2. He’s not big enough to play a frog, that’s a tadpole. Also, does he have to fight that ninja or something?

    Pure genius. The way Ricky Gervais laughs after he gets Willow to hop up the stairs might be the best thing we’re going to see all day.

  7. Ricky has clearly somehow mistaken Warwick Davis for Ronnie James Dio…which is hard to understand since Dio is dead.

  8. It must be laundry day at the ninja union.

    “You! Get this baby off the set!”

    “Her name is not Baby! She’s Elora Dannen, the future empress of Tir Asleen!”

    “Take me to a place where Ricky Gervais can not touch me!!!!”

    He’s giving Satanic hand signals!

    I recall not too long ago “little people” were trying to get more respect in society.

    Well, Ricky has destroyed all that and Warwick Davis sold out to help him do it.

    • Elaine Benes

      He hasn’t been funny in years and even then most of it was by accident. He spends 90% of the time just laughing like a little girl at himself.

      • ZigZagZoey

        Yeah, I love An Idiot Abroad, but the worst thing about the show is Ricky laughing as if it’s 2000x funnier than it is.

  13. wow “halfway up the stairs” parody? or “it isn’t easy being wee..”

    I saw this last night via a Tweet, I really don’t know what to think.

    Warwick is a bright bloke though.

    Warwick Davis seems like a damned good sport.
    Hope he was paid well.

    This was pretty funny, Ricky isn’t trying to make other people laugh by the way. He wants to make himself laugh and obviously enough people laugh along with him. Different strokes. It may seem ad-lib or that Warwick didn’t know he’d be in a frog costume but everything that happened in this promo was written by Ricky.

  17. Frank Burns

    Oh I get it, its funny because the one guy is short.

    • Hugh Jass

      It’s not that. What roles are dwarf actors usually cast in? Like that Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich commercial where a dwarf comes out dress as a leprechaun with a pot of gold. Ricky isn’t doing anything different, he put him in that costume to point out that “little people” get those types of roles and have to do embarrassing things. To think Ricky is doing this just because he’s a dwarf is absurd.

      • Bonky

        You have got to be kidding me. Ricky IS doing this because this man is a “dwarf”. Ricky seems to have the 420 giggles and is making a show from this, not very high brow if you ask me.

      • katy perry

        The 420 giggles?
        Call your mom…she misses you.

    this guy is very fucking annoying.

  19. Ricky Gervais

    But he’s in a FROG suit you guys!!!! Ha ha ha ha!!! I can’t stop my maniacal laughter! Look you small he is, LOOK!!!

  20. chev70

    I don’t like that carpet at all.

  21. tlmck

    I know life is too short to listen to anything that comes from Ricky Gervais.

  22. rickygervaisteeth

    Ok we’re done with Gervais. Thanks England.

  23. Marceelf

    I love Ricky Gervais. His podcasts are hilarious. I’ve been a faithful reader of the Superficial for years, never knew I was in such highbrow company. Warwick seemed to be laughing pretty hard too. Maybe they had both tipped a few.

    Get a grip people. Life’s too short to moan about other peoples choices. Warwick wouldn’t do it if he didn’t want to, and surely they both feel that they are making the most out of their own circumstances and seem to be enjoying it at the same time. I for one am looking forward to the new series’ of both An Idiot Abroad and Life’s too short. Have fun everybody.

  26. huh

    That bit was just not that funny for the amount of laughter involved. oh well, gervais is talented none the less.

  27. katy perry

    seriously. what the fuck is wrong with you? Ricky Gervais is hilarious. And midgets are comedy gold.

  28. katy perry's swollen anus

    Agreed. If the posters on this site had to put together a comedy show, there would be a suicide epidemic.

    I like everything positive. I’m on this website since the first day of its existence and I have never seen anything negative on it. This website is made by people, who think positive and who have many things to tell others. I love this website, I always get positive emotions from it and I can stay here the whole days and nights!
