Maya and Marty: Ricky Gervais and Jiminy Glick trade insults

Posted on

NBC

Ricky Gervais never misses the chance to excoriate his fellow Hollywood celebrities, but he may have met his match in Jiminy Glick. Gervais sat down with Martin Short’s fat-suited celebrity interviewer on this week’s episode of Maya & Marty, and was immediately thrown into the deep end. First, Glick called him “Steve Carell,” and then said he only remembered Gervais’ name because it sounded like “gingivitis.”

“It’s like a talking egg,” Gervais said of Glick. “Humpty Dumpty came to life.”

“Thank you, first of all, because I’m a big fan of that guy,” Glick said. 

Glick responded by taking issue with Gervais’ British accent, comparing him to Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins and pirates. 

“You know it’s not an accent I’m putting on? This is my accent,” Gervais said. 

“If we woke you up at 3 in the morning, what would you sound like?” Glick asked.

“If you woke me up at 3 a.m., I’d have a heart attack,” Gervais said.
