Ricky Gervais is coming to Alberta! More specifically, Banff.

I think I just peed myself a little.

During this years Banff World Television Festival and Next Media (website) conference, the comedic genious behind the original The Office, will be on hand to accept this year’s Sir Peter Ustinov Comedy Award, presented to an outstanding comedic actor.

On top of the prestigious award, Gervais will share his reflections on his career and achievements in an interview open to nextMEDIA Banff delegates.

Upon hearing about his award, Gervais had this to say: “This is probably the greatest honour of my career. Only the Nobel Peace Prize can top this, but I will only accept that in person if the ceremony is held somewhere as beautiful as Banff. I think they Fedex luckily.”

I can’t wait to go to the television festival. I need to go!
Speaking of that….anyone want to pay for me to go?
