Ricky Gervais Made Fun of Bruce Jenner

Ricky Gervais was really funny that he became a hot topic after he opened the 73rd Golden Globes on 10 January.

His greatest moment so far was when started the show with two jokes about transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner — just as he told the audience that he had become a nicer person and undergone a lot of changes over the past year.

"I've changed," he began. "Not as much as Bruce Jenner." Jenner came out as 'Caitlyn' Jenner on the cover of Vanity Fair in June and has used that name since.

There are millions of Bruce Jenner jokes and calling him "Bruce" tops all of them in Gervais' book.

After poking fun at Jenner's transition, Gervais made light of Jenner's legal troubles for her involvement in a fatal car crash last February 2015.

"She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes," he said. "She didn't do a lot for women drivers, but you can't have everything."

After joking about Jenner, he went on to discuss the Golden Globe-winning series "Transparent," especially lead actor Jeffrey Tambor, who plays a transgender woman, Maura Pfefferman, on the show.

"That takes balls," Gervais began. "So I don't know how he does it." Gervais then wondered where Tambor places his penis when he plays the role.
