Amazon review: "Remarkably for someone who doesn't claim to be either an actor or a professional stand-up comic, Ricky Gervais has now triumphed in both fields. Animals Live is his one-man show at London's Bloomsbury Theatre during which the star of The Office ("That's two BAFTA Awards") presents a "lecture" on the animal kingdom in a shameless bid to inherit David Attenborough's mantle, since the old boy is getting on a bit and can't last forever. The subject is loose and broad enough to allow for plenty of digressions and amiable ramblings about sex, childhood, war and, of course, more sex.

There's something of Eddie Izzard's style in Gervais's approach, especially noticeable when he dissects the Biblical Genesis story for its absurdities; and he has also learned lessons from the father of his Office co-star Lucy Davis, Jasper Carrott. In the best segment, and one that's pure Carrott Confidential, Gervais reads out genuine animal "facts" from a website and comments gleefully upon them. Although his range is limited--he's neither an impressionist nor a mimic--Gervais gets by on a mixture of easygoing charm and bare-faced cheek, which in a short show of about an hour is all he needs to keep everyone laughing. --Mark Walker"

£5.43 delivered or £3.97 if you can bulk up your order to £15 to qualify for free shipping. For those who like to feel good about their purchases by comparing to the ridiculously high priced competition, the cheapest elsewhere is £12 delivered on Play.

This is my first deal post with this new system so please excuse any mistakes.

Edit: I've just realised that Politics is also the same price:

amazon.co.uk/Ric…IC/

The Politics ones has some great features starring the rounded headed Karl Pilkington.
