Ricky Gervais

Comic/Actor/Writer

Ricky Gervais of "The Office" (a popular british sitcom, won Golden Globe for best comedy series and best comic actor)

He says he is an atheist on his DVD "Ricky Gervais: Animals - Live."

In a Daily Mirror interview "I'm basically a 'do unto others' type person. I don't have any religious feelings because I'm an atheist, but I live my life like there's a God. And if there was he'd probably love me."

From an interview published in The Onion (22-28 April 2004):

Q: did you feel any obligation to thank your fellow nominees, or did any of the usual awards speech stuff?

Gervais: ...Thank you very much. I don't believe in God, so I'd like to thank dogs. Dogs have given me everything.
