Ricky Gervais and Elmo bring the house down!

Ricky Gervais can be the most irritating human on the planet at times… however, when he’s on form, he’s virtually untouchable.

Same goes for Sesame Street’s Elmo. Between Gervais and Elmo is two incredibly infectious laughs and, it seems, a rather adult sense of humour. Okay, that’s not too surprising in the case of Ricky Gervais… but cute little Elmo?!

The two got together for some kind of interview and presumably, the out-takes have been leaked and… well… they’re going viral like no-one’s business.

As shown briefly on the Jonathan Ross show at the weekend, the two really hit it off and provoke and cajole each other into some seriously big laughs.

If you haven’t seen the clip, which contains Elmo really holding his own with Gervais, click below. Seriously… it could be one of the funniest things you watch all year. Someone should seriously consider giving these two a podcast or a show.
