Ricky Gervais talks to T Magazine about his love affair with New York.
Of all the things that have happened in my life, I’d say that living in New York is the closest thing to a dream coming true. I don’t profess to really know America. I haven’t even visited “America” in any real sense. Back in Britain people ask me what America is like. I say, “Well, I only really know L.A. and New York.” Then they ask me which I prefer. I tell them New York. Then they ask me what the difference is. I say, “In New York, at least they stab you in the front.”
