Brent is Back for Comic Relief


Arise Brent-lovers, for your King is returning.

Ricky Gervais has announced that there will be a one-off special of the UK version of the seminal show The Office. The episode will air on March 15th as part of the Comic Relief night, and sees the cameras catching up with David Brent ten years on from the Christmas Specials of 2003.

It seems Brent is still on the road selling cleaning products, but that hasn't stopped him dreaming of making it in the music industry - only now, he's looking to do so as a big-shot manager, with urban artist Dom Johnson under his wing.

Gervais told The Sun: "I thought it was time to revisit my most famous comedy creation to find out what he's been up to for the last decade and most importantly what he's up to now. He is passing on his wisdom to younger would-be rock stars now.

"Well, really he is trying to worm his way back into rock and roll. Fans of The Office will be excited to know we finally get to hear the whole of 'The Serpent who guards the gates of Hell' and an amazing Brent self-funded video 'Equality Street'. Horrendous."

If it's half as good as Brent's previous self-funded video, we're in for a treat.

Of course, as the second video shows, this isn't the first time that David Brent has done something for charity...

You can see the full trailer here.
