The Ricky Gervais Show sign now

Online campaign to tell Ricky Gervais and the producers of The Ricky Gervais Show (Season/Series 2) to stop putting out a charge for the weekly podcast downloads.

British comedian Ricky Gervais and his companions, former radio producer Karl Pilkington and co-writer Stephen Merchant had been providing a 'free' weekly podcast download since November 2005. Content of these shows featured similar topics and content as their previous British radio show on XFM. This proved a popular worldwide hit and had even entered the Guinness Book of Records as the most downloaded podcast ever.

However, since the second series of The All New Ricky Gervais Show launched in March 2006, there has been a subscription fee of 3.75GBP ($6.95) to Audible. This has angered many listeners. The iTunes reviews have stated that: the sound quality is poorer than the previous 'FREE' series, there is a difference in pricing and many people feel, in general, that Ricky Gervais is charging for something that is 'not good quality'.

On the show itself, Gervais uses his comic excuse that Karl Pilkington is unemployed and needs the money. This is simply untrue.

In a personal view, it seems clear that as a person who has been successful in the comedy business (in the UK and America) on stage and television and makes money via his merchandise (such as books and his 'Extras'/'The Office' DVDs). There is no valid reason for why Ricky Gervais has to put out a charge for this podcast - especially seeming as it is now poorer quality than before.

Please sign this petition and lets hope this matter is eventually resolved.
