Warwick is doing a tremendous job on this show. His double-takes at the camera when he's in yet another embarrassing situation are classic. I love his assistant, too. "Is this microwave, um, radioactive?"
At the beginning of the series, it seemed that Gervais and Merchant's roles would be to poke fun at Warwick and act conceited. However, they are not averse to playing the fools, either, as in the Carell video call debacle.
