Gervais to make jokes in GTA IV

He wrote fresh material for it.

Comedian Ricky Gervais has revealed he can be found being funny inside Grand Theft Auto IV.

The Office and Extras star will feature as an act at the in-game Comedy Club, where he will perform around three minutes of fresh material as well as some older jokes from his Fame tour.

"It's a first - which always interests me," Gervais told free London magazine Shortlist. "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's 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."

Gervais went on to say he pops up elsewhere in Grand Theft Auto IV, although where and when we will have to wait and see.

He's not the first famous face to put his vocals to the Rockstar series. Stars such as Stretch Armstrong, Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper, Michael Madsen, Ray Liotta, Samuel L. Jackson, Debbie Harry and more have all appeared before now.
