Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the genius comedy team behind The Office and Extras are returning to television with a new sitcom for BBC2 called Life’s Too Short about a celebrity dwarf.
It’s a mockumentary about Warwick Davis who is a dwarf actor in real life, playing himself. As Gervais told Radio Times: “it’s about…the life of a showbiz dwarf. He plays himself, we play ourselves, it’s sort of like Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
Bring forth the little person puns:
“Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know,” Gervais said.
It sounds like a bit of a tall order – hopefully they don’t fall short.
As Tiptoes taught the dozens of people that saw it – “It’s only the size of your heart that counts”:
