FIRST LOOK: Ricky Gervais Accepting His Lifetime Achievement Award

At the 2012 Shorty Awards in New York City this past Monday, comedian Ricky Gervais received a Lifetime Achievement Award. Never mind that it was for but a relatively short period of his colorful lifetime, relayed via Twitter.

Tonight, FishbowlLA – in conjunction with event organizers – has your exclusive first look at the video acceptance speech the comedian delivered that night. We won’t spoil any of if, other than to say that the bit at the end about exchanging tweets with creationists is our favorite portion of the minute-and-change interlude. That, and the casualness of the backdrop.

Gervais goofing about the inanity of awards… at the “Oscars of Twitter.” Doesn’t get much better than that at the end of a work week.
