Ricky Gervais in GTA: "I look slightly tougher"

Ricky Gervais - of The Office fame in the UK -is in GTA IV, as part of Liberty City's stand-up comedy club, and somewhere else he's not saying...

Speaking to free magazine Shortlist, Gervais revealed that he performs three minute skits of never-before-heard material in Liberty City's comedy club, as well as gags from his recent Fame tour.

The Comedy Club is one of several extracurricular activities you can get up to in GTA IV, as well as bowling, darts and yes, drinking.

"It's a first - which always interests me," he said. "It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn't so good.

"Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It is seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it's nice to be a small part of that."

The Comedy Club isn't the only place you'll find Gervais in GTA IV, he teases, but he's not saying where else he crops up yet.

Let's hope Rockstar didn't stop with him. After all, San Andreas had Samuel L mother-f**king Jackson.
