Ricky Gervais takes heat from James Shannon, a sergeant at Scotland's Edinburgh Castle. Gervais performs his comedy routine there Aug. 26.

Actor and writer Ricky Gervais is best known as creator and star of the British TV comedy The Office, which was adapted into a U.S. hit starring Steve Carrell.

He also stars in Extras, which airs in the U.S. on HBO; it's about an out-of-work actor scrambling for bit parts — until he lands a leading role in a crass but popular sitcom.

Gervais also writes the Flanimals children's books.
