The Onion’s A.V. Club consistently has the best interviews. They’ve ran pieces on FROM HELL comic book writer Alan Moore, filmmakers Abel Ferrera and Hal Hartley, comedians Eddie Izzard and Amy Sedaris, and musicians Modest Mouse and Stephen Malkmus, to name a few. Their archive of pop culture notables is quite impressive, and their indepth format and intelligent questions puts slight, overhyped celeb fluf like Interview magazine to shame.
This week’s interview is with Ricky Gervais, the creator of the hilarious BBC comedy series, THE OFFICE. Gervais talks about helming the show, his involvement in the American version on NBC, his favorite sitcoms, and ending the show on a high note.
