David Brent’s Back In All His Cringeworthy Glory

Office workers around the country beware, the world’s worst boss David Brent is back in all his cringeworthy glory!


David Brent:Life on The Road is the long demanded return of Ricky Gervais’ most iconic creation, the bumbling boss with a heart of gold who we last saw back in 2013 at Comic Relief.

Now Brent’s made the jump to the big screen and it seems that the ex-Wernham Hogg manager is still chasing fame and fortune, hitting the road with exasperated side-kick Dom Johnson (Doc Brown) on a tour that’ll make his band’s name.

The two-minute teaser looks hilariously awkward as the years clearly haven’t made David any wiser, and he bumbles and fumbles in the trailer like its 2001 all over again.

It’s just a shame that Stephen Merchant hasn’t returned as some of Gervais’ solo efforts have been a bit hit or miss over the years but we’re pretty confident that this’ll be a smasher.

While Dom may claim Brent’s hard to watch, we disagree and can’t wait to see him again!

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism. Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
