Rather than simply cheating -- trying to gain from another's cooperative behaviour without behaving cooperatively yourself -- lying adds another way of operating. By misleading the other individual, one can trick that individual into cooperating.
As I am currently filming the new Muppets movie, I am unable to do any chat shows or radio interviews to publicize Derek. Luckily, we conducted an interview with the main cast and transcribed it into this blog, which HuffPost will now publish to its hundreds of millions wonderful, intelligent, comedy-loving readers.
Science is essential to the development of technology and medicine and the advancement of our society -- and religion has been a cornerstone of civilisation for millennia. It is incredibly unimaginative to believe that we can only reap the benefits of one at the expense of the other.
Finished principal photography on Derek. Quite simply the best shoot I've ever been a part of.
The 2012 New York Comedy Festival returns November 7-11 to offer up big laughs to the Big Apple with comedy's biggest stars performing on New York's grandest stages, including Carnegie Hall, The Beacon Theatre, Madison Square Garden, Town Hall, and The Apollo Theater.
First the bad news... I don't think I'm going to do a fourth series of The Ricky Gervais Show. 39 episodes is more than I've ever done for any other project (Yes. I know that's pathetic but trust me.) and I don't want to push my luck.
Gervais asserts that he plays a character on stage, ironically presenting himself as better or more knowledgeable than the people in the seats. But it's a bit harder to laugh along with the school bully than it is with the class clown.
This was the week when we lost the last real barrier between Mitt Romney and the GOP nomination. Rick Santorum, you will be missed. In other news, Fac...
Not only has The Office transitioned into the post Michael Scott era with grace, but I am relishing the complexity of the other characters and story lines.
This unfunny program goes a long way toward proving that the smug, smirking Gervais has turned into The Office's David Brent.
"Fame" used to be fused with "respect" in some ways. That's what distinguished it from infamy. But not anymore.
Imagine sipping a latte at your local coffee shop, and some crazy dude in the rest room throws open the door and hollers for more toilet paper. He's perched on the bowl, hairy legs spread apart. What would you do?
There is no way to prove or disprove the existence of God. Especially when we can't even nail down what exactly it is we're talking about.
The South Carolina primary dominated this news this week, with two debates (and two standing ovations for Newt Gingrich). But Newt wasn't the only can...
It's oddly intriguing that a lackluster show and a diluted dose of Ricky Gervais appeals to me greater than his shockmeister two prior appearances.
If Ricky Gervais doesn't get invited back by the Golden Globes in 2013, it might be because he was so boring at Sunday night's ceremony.
