Ricky Gervais insists his comedy is 'irony' amid anti-trans row
Ricky Gervais has insisted his jokes are “irony” after his new Netflix special was branded anti-trans.

The comic defended himself after his show ‘SuperNature’ on the streamer was branded “dangerous” by an LGBT rights group.

He told BBC One’s ‘The One Show’: “I think that’s what comedy is for, really – to get us through stuff, and I deal in taboo subjects because I want to take the audience to a place it hasn’t been before, even for a split second.

“Most offence comes from when people mistake the subject of a joke with the actual target.”

Gervais, 60, also opened his hour-long ‘SuperNature’ with a caveat he is “satirizing attitudes”.

He jokes “old-fashioned women… the ones with wombs” are now “f—ing dinosaurs” compared with trans people “who have beards and c—s”.

Gervais adds on the newly released show: “The worst thing you can say today is, ‘Women don’t have penises’.”

There is also a section where Gervais pretends to have transitioned to being a woman and seduces a lesbian.

He is a double edge sword, he still advocated the vax.

He makes a very valid point about women with beards and dicks. Why Women aren't outraged about this trans BS says much about the sorry state of Women these days.

i saw it, the only part i found offensive is when he called people not wanting 9 month and beyond abortions conspiracy theorists. so he played his part for the team.
Only 1 in 10,000 come for the show.
