Fat, Rich and Funny as Hell

Happy Birthday to one of the funniest comedians on the planet, Ricky Gervais. Gervais turns 50 today.

Gervais, a stand-up comedian and film actor, is probably best known for creating the British sitcom, "The Office", which was later made into an American sitcom starring Steve Carrell. To date, Gervais' "The Office", which was broadcast on American television on the BBC America network, is the only non-American sitcom to ever win the Emmy for Oustanding Comedy Series.
