Watch Ricky Gervais’ trailer for his new HBO show, “Life’s Too Short”

I’m pretty sure BAMF is synonymous with Ricky Gervais. He holds nothing back, he’s responsible for some of the best comedies in recent memory, and he has the best laugh in the world.

So, Ricky Gervais fans, rejoice! HBO confirmed that they’ll air the comic’s new series, Life’s Too Short, created with Gervais’ ever-present collaborator, Stephen Merchant.
