It’s good to see Ricky Gervais throwing himself into the mire of mediocrity that is his greatest creation. David Brent is coming back, and there’s nothing we can do to stop him.
These new posters for the big screen outing, Life on the Road, are exactly the sort of thing you’d imagine seeing on the living room wall of a middle manager who has just won the lottery. The second one is my favourite, which is a bit like choosing between Tory leader candidates right now.
Before you check out the new images, care for a synopsis?
Now working as a rep selling cleaning (and ladies personal hygiene) products up and down the country, Brent hasn’t given up his dream of becoming a rock star – or more specifically, singer/songwriter for fledgling rock band ‘Foregone Conclusion’. As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self-financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you.
