Life's Too Short is a BBC "mockumentary" now airing on HBO. It was created by (and also features) Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant (An Idiot Abroad). The show follows British actor Warwick Davis (Willow, Harry Potter movies, Star Wars movies, etc) as he tries to stay in the limelight. There are planned appearances by a ton of huge names (like Johnny Depp and Steve Carrell) .
Two episodes have aired so far, but I am behind and just watched the first one last night. The humor was almost entirely deadpan and I thought it was hilarious! Warwick and the people he interacted with were all great. However, the BEST was the appearance by Liam Neeson. He came to Ricky and Steven and announced he wanted to work in stand-up comedy and what followed was absolutely brilliant!!
I hope the rest of this show lives up to the first episode!
