Following comedian Ricky Gervais‘ announcement to resurrect his character from The Office, David Brent, in a mockumentary, VICE has hit back to try and sway the excitement as Gervais’ attempt may “smudge the memory”. VICE’s argument is that Gervais may be not only flogging a dead horse, but beating the living-hell out of its corpse [...]
We covered the arrival of this delightful web series when it popped up on Ricky Gervais’ channel a few weeks ago, but we’ve been somewhat slack with keeping you abreast of anything past the pilot episode. So, in the spirit of current affairs and devouring minutes from your workday, we give you episode two (above), [...]

Last month’s rumours were true. Comedy cult icon, David Brent, is back. And he is raising money for charity. Brent returns in a 10 minute mini episode after The Office.

Angus T. Jones, the actor who portrays Jake Harper on Two and a Half Men, has had a pretty crazy week.
