First, Slough... Then the World


It's oddly comforting to know that there's not just one David Brent in the world, but a plethora. The collective term, we believe, is an office of Brents.

Perhaps even more comforting is the fact that the vast majority speak foreign languages, so we can sit back and enjoy their Brentisms, without having to endure the toe-curling buffoonary that comes from their mouths.

Gentleman, we give you, the best Brents from around the world.

The Office 10th anniversary edition boxset is available here.
