In this teaser clip, you’ll see Ricky Gervais pitch Life’s Too Short as “sort like a cross between The Office and Extras, really.” Out of ideas so soon?
The show will star Warwick Davies, of Ewok and Willow repute, and there are roles for Gervais and Stephen Merchant also.
The big joke in this teaser, then, is that Keith Chegwin is doing the lighting, Les Dennis is doing the makeup and Shaun Williamson did the coffee run.
I suppose the small joke is that neither Merchant or Davies get much of a look in, really. I wonder how realistic that is?
Anyway. I kind of liked Cemetery Junction…
