Ricky Gervais might have been a little bit of a disappointment at the 2012 Golden Globes, but the comedian hasn’t given up on offending people just yet. His latest target: Anne Frank. Yep, you read that right.
Gervais appeared on The Daily Show last night, starting off his interview with the innocent, victimless bashing of his friend and colleague Karl Pilkington (costar of The Ricky Gervais Show and An Idiot Abroad), which host Jon Stewart seemed to get a kick out of. But Stewart’s demeanor changed rapidly when Gervais began riffing some material on how shocked he is that Anne Frank wasn’t discovered earlier. Gervais tried to laugh it off, but Stewart was visibly uncomfortable.
However, it was nothing a few jokes about Jesus’ crucifixion couldn’t mend — the two seemed to bond on the humor of that subject. Yep.
