Gervais Backs Cancer Campaign
British funnyman RICKY GERVAIS is fronting an advertising campaign to raise awareness about prostate cancer in the UK.
THE OFFICE comedian will sketch the excruciating embarrassment of a rectal examination for a radio voice-over written and produced by himself.
He says, "I'd heard that in many cases you stand a greater chance of beating cancer if you catch it early enough and the thought of someone dying for the sake of three seconds of mild embarrassment is a ripe comedy passage. No pun intended."
