#Ricky Gervais : #Warwick Davis Is A comedy Genius! #ewok #starwars

RICKY Gervais towers over Warwick Davis - but he reckons the 3ft 6ins Brit actor, 40, is head and shoulders above his comedy rivals.



The pair were filming new BBC2 sitcom Life's Too Short in Central London.
Ricky, 49, who wrote the show with comedy partner Stephen Merchant, said: "Warwick is one of the funniest people in the world.
"I laughed so much today I thought I'd burst."

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have cast Warwick Davis to star in their new TV series Life’s Too Short.  Davis, who was in the Daniel Radcliffe episode of Gervais and Merchant’s series Extras, will be the center of, “an observation comedy which follows Warwick’s day-to-day life in a small world where big things happen.”  Says Gervais, “We’re having so much fun working with Warwick.  Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know.”  According to Variety, Gervais and Merchant will appear in minor roles.
The 3′ 6″ actor’s previous roles include Wicket in Return of the Jedi, Marvin in A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (2005),  Charms instructor Filius Flitwick in the Harry Potter films, and most importantly, he is the star of all six Leprechaun films.
