Ricky Gervias guest stars in GTA IV as stand up comedian.

Rotund comedian (hehe) Ricky Gervias has revealed that he will appear in GTA IV when it is released at the end of the month. Ricky will star as a stand up comedian in one of the comedy clubs in Liberty City. He will be performing 3 minutes of new material together with some recycled stuff from his great Fame tour.

“It’s a first – which always interests me,” he said. “It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn’t so good. Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It’s seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it’s nice to be a small part of that.”

He also cameos elsewhere in the game but is keeping that shtum!via
