Comedian Ricky Gervais is returning to his roots with his new Sirius XM radio show “Ricky Gervais Is Deadly Sirius."
He said in a statement, "I started out in radio, and SiriusXM made me an offer to return that I couldn't refuse. With 32 million subscribers, editorial control, my own playlist and absolute freedom of speech, it's the perfect platform for me, and hopefully the listener too.”
Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of Sirius, shared, “Ricky Gervais is undoubtedly one of the most uniquely talented comedians in the game. Whether he's starring in a beloved television show, delivering raucous stand-up before a crowd of 20,000, or skewering celebrities at an awards show, the bottom line is that Ricky is a compelling performer whose legion of fans is only growing. We're ecstatic that he's bringing those many talents to SiriusXM, where he'll tackle some of life's big mysteries, while he charms and enlightens our more than 32 million subscribers nationwide.”
“Ricky Gervais Is Deadly Sirius,” which premieres October 24, will air Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. ET
