Ricky Gervais’ New Show Will Make Him Look Very Tall

There is no doubting that Ricky Gervais is hysterical. But his new show sounds a little … little. Called “Life is Short,” the new comedy follows Warwick Davis, who is 3″6′ and the most famous little person in the U.K. You’ve seen him, too. Remember “Willow”? Yep, that’s him. The show chronicles the trials and tribulations of being a little actor. “It’s about his life, the life of a showbiz dwarf,” says Gervais. “He plays himself, I play myself, it’s sort of like ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’ We’re having so much fun working with Warwick. Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know.”

So what do you think—will you be watching? Or will you wait for the inevitable American version? [NY Mag]
