On Monday night's "Late Show," David Letterman welcomed the always funny Ricky Gervais, who proved he really is a comedian at all times. While recalling his childhood, Gervais said he had a family of comedians who valued humor above all else. Even at his own mother's funeral, Gervais and his siblings injected humor into the sad occasion with practical jokes.
Check out the clip below to hear how Gervais had his family cracking up in the middle of the vicar's prayer, and how he and his siblings played a prank on their brother Larry at the funeral.
