Ricky Gervais Doesn’t Believe In the Supernatural

-You’re going back on tour
for stand-up, which is very exciting. -“SuperNature” is
the name of the show. [ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah.
-Where did that name come from? -“SuperNature” for two reasons. I sort of debunk
the supernatural. I don’t believe in
anything supernatural. I think anything that exists is,
by definition, part of nature. And also “SuperNature” ’cause
I think nature is super enough. I think it’s amazing.
-Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] -And I talk about that. I say, like, “We don’t need
angels and unicorns, you know? We’ve got
the duck-billed platypus. -Right.
-You know what I mean? This is true —
when that was discovered, scientists thought it was a hoax Because it produces
eggs and milk. It could make its own custard.
It doesn’t, but it could. [ Laughter ]
They’re amazing. It’s amazing. [ Chuckles ] -And you obviously
tour internationally. -Yeah.
-Obviously, that’s a grand idea that seems like it travels well. Do you have to
change your act much when you… -As long as I don’t do what was on British TV
the night before. But when you’re dealing with,
like, you know, AIDS and Hitler, it sort of travels everywhere.
You know what I -They say there’s a lot of
downsides to AIDS and Hitler. But the good side is
it really travels well. [ Laughter ] I want to ask you.
This is a photo of you with some nieces and nephews.
Do you have a funny family? -That’s just one —
that’s one sibling’s — -That’s — Really?
-Yes. -That’s quite a brood.
-I know. And there’s about 30 in all.
I don’t know their names. [ Laughter ]
I see them at Christmas. -Are they excited to see you?
-Yeah. They know I’ve got
a bit of money now. They just go through my pockets
and run off. -And it must be tough
with so many of them. How do you defend against them?
-Yeah. -One is getting your attention
and then the wallet is gone. -Exactly. They’re lovely.
They’re lovely whoever they are. [ Laughter ] -Congratulations on the show.
I’m really enjoying it. Thanks so much for being back.
It’s always great to see you.

I get your point, Ricky.
But you also strike me as a kid that just discovered Santa is not real, and can't stop running around telling everyone about it, feeling so proud he's a grownup now, while he's just starting adolescence..
You talk about the miracle of nature? You have seen nothing yet!

Here in Japan people believe in ghosts and I keep telling them that ghosts make no sense. We live in a world with more than 7 billion people and I can’t go two feet without bumping into another person. Well, more than 100 billion people have lived and died on the Earth. If ghosts existed, there would be like 10-15 ghosts haunting each and every person on the planet 24/7.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?" 
– Douglas Adams

Can't believe he didn't make a Dickensian joke about his nieces and nephews, but I'm American, so maybe that just seemed too obvious to him.

It was one of the things that made his XFM show with Merchant and Pilkington so great was that Karl basically believed EVERYTING with seemingly no critical thinking ability and it just drove Ricky crazy.
