Ricky Gervais to appear in Curb Your Enthusiasm

Comedian Ricky Gervais has signed on for a role in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The Office creator will appear in the comedy series playing himself in the next season set for 2011.

Also, Gervais’ new comedy project with Stephen Merchant Life’s Too Short, examining the life of a dwarf in the entertainment business, may also be picked up by HBO who screens Curb in the US.

His Ricky Gervais Show is currently airing on the channel at the moment with a second season given the go-ahead already.

“This is what it’s all about,” Gervais told Daily Variety. “There’s nothing better than me and Steve coming up with ideas. It’s great to do a movie, do ‘The Simpsons’ and an awards show, but I don’t get that adrenaline rush in trying make Steve laugh. This is our DNA.”
