Ricky Gervais: SuperNature (2022)
Cast: Ricky Gervais
Runtime: 64 mins
One of the most popular and highest-grossing British comedians of the past few decades, Ricky Gervais has seen his fair share of controversy thanks to his no-holds-barred comedy. His latest special is easily one of the most divisive specials on Netflix to date.
Nothing is off-limits for the British comedian which is no doubt going to land Netflix in similar hot water it was in following Dave Chappelle’s special added last year.
