  1. gigi lollo says:

    I loooooove Stephen Merchant. I am also from the midwest. A lot of people know who he is here. Kids these days.

  2. Tom O says:

    Thanks to the magic of imagination, you guys where interviewing a floating Wheatley ball who was drinking tea for this interview.

  3. Jesse says:

    So fracking awesome I love Stephen merchant

  4. Jennifer Erickson says:

    The gal that brought you tea and whatnot didn’t know you were already recording, huh? That was funny.

    What a lame comment I have made here.

  5. Josef says:

    It’s a shame this one was so short, he was fansinating. I guess you left us wanting more. Hopefully you will have him on again.

  6. Jake says:

    loved it, but saddened that you guys got cut off from having a full show. i would’ve loved to hear more

  7. Flatulator says:

    Fascinating interview; I wish it was longer. Bring this gangly tea-nigger back for Round 2!

  10. Apple says:

    I fuckin’ adore you guys for this. This guy deserves more recognition.

  11. Mario says:

    Bffhahaha honduran royalty! As ,probably, the only honduran listener I salute you guys! Love the show!

  12. chris says:

    Another excellent human being! Thank you

  13. JonBoy says:

    SO excited for this one. Fuck you train ride home from work, I’m going to enjoy myself listening to this!

  14. Billy says:

    Merchant is just the best, isn’t he?

  15. So excited to listen this. Just read a Kotaku article on best games for different platforms and when it came to Portal 2 – I though they were spot on:

    A Good Match for: Comedy lovers. The voicework alone—performed in stellar fashion by Stephen Merchant and Ellen McLain—will make you laugh out loud but the brain-teasing puzzles and embedded gags keep the chuckles coming even when everything else in the game goes quiet.

    Not for Those Who Want: Mediocrity. People who argue with Portal 2’s greatness are like folks complaining that diamonds came from dirt. Their argument is invalid.

  16. CK says:

    Wheatley!!!! So glad you got Mr. Merchant on the podcast.

  17. Arieh says:

    Very excited for this one. The Ricky Gervais Show was the first podcast I listened to, and to have one of its creators on my current favourite podcast ought to be incredimazeballs>
