Before They Were Stars (2-for-1 Special): Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant Host an Early Version of “The Ricky Gervais Show”

After finding fame with The Office in 2001, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant became co-hosts of the radio programme, The Ricky Geravis Show, on Xfm, starting off their collaboration with producer Karl Pilkington. However, many people don’t realize that when they were still relatively unknown, Gervais and Merchant actually hosted an earlier version of The Ricky Gervais Show on Xfm London in 1998 before the station was purchased by the Capital Radio Group. This version of the show was a lot more interactive, and in this particular episode, Gervais takes a phone call from his very profane mother.
