Animated series is an acquired (and foul-mouthed) taste.

Dying of laughter

This is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. My favorite bit is when Carl predicts the future.

Some Swears, but funny

The Ricky Gervais show is funny, but a swear is found in about every episode. I personally would say that it was iffy for ages 11+ because of the slight swearing. You would feel bad for Karl, but he is so misinformed it is funny.

Karl's funny, but kids that are younger won't get his jokes.

The Ricky Gervais Show is just funny. Perfectly funny. Karl is so innocently misinformed, you can't help but laugh at his incredibile (and often impossible) stories. His friends poke fun at him, but always in a lighthearted sort of way, because obviously Karl needs a little bit of that to bring him back to earth. Though, I don't think that it's good to encourage kids to tease others like this, because it's not the same as in the show, so a little bit of an older audience is best. Besides, it'd be hard for younger kids to get the jokes.

Perfect for adults wanting something a bit more engaging

I absolutely love the "Ricky Gervais Show." It is a breath of fresh aire from all the same old comedies out there and I look forward to every episode. Despite it's apparent sophomoric humor, I find it intelligent and fun. Anyone out there can write silly one-liners and basically dumb sexual teen comedy, but it takes intelligent writers like these to make jokes out of history and thoughtful maters.

16+

Judging by the review, I think this show is suitable for 16+. If the strong language was bleeped, it would probably be iffy for 14+ or on for 15+.
