Ricky Gervais - playing God?
Comedian Ricky Gervais has revealed details about his new television series Afterlife. The show is about an atheist who dies and finds himself in heaven, and Gervais is set to appear as an "arrogant, wisecracking" God. He has said in his blog that his version of the Almighty, "loves welcoming atheists to heaven with a smug grin on his face". Gervais has never been afraid to push the boundaries of comedy to new limits, but is playing God a step too far? And what do his stars tell us about this innovative comedian?

Gervais was born on June 25th 1961, making him a Cancer born in the Chinese year of the Ox. Crabs are shy creatures who do not like others to `get too close` and if they feel threatened, have a tendency to retreat behind their shells. For Gervais, bashfulness does not at first glance appear to be a problem - he seems to be at ease as the centre of attention. But look a little closer and this very public face masks a more thoughtful man underneath - a man who uses comedy as a deflection against unwanted attention or any kind of focus on the real person beneath the mask. Gervais loves to shock, and his latest endeavours are sure to cause some controversy. Perhaps this is his more mischievous Cancer side coming to the fore. By holding up a mirror to the absurdity of extreme religious believes through turning the conventional image of a benevolent God on its head, perhaps Gervais is asking us to explore our own relationship with the creator a little more deeply. Whatever his motivation, Gervias is set to continue poking at life`s (and comedy`s) boundaries and challenging us to do the same.
