The comedian, who co-created and co-wrote The Office with Stephen Merchant, resurrected the character 10 years after the original program went off the air for Britain’s Comic Relief charity show in 2013, and for the subsequent launch of Gervais’ own YouTube channel. Continue reading »

So much for being light entertainment. Seven Sharp revealed last night that Peter Dunne’s son is working for Chen Palmer and the legal high industry.
