As GTA IV fever reaches a climax here at Stuff Towers and we all frantically book the launch week off, news keeps filtering through of the myriad ways we'll be spending our spare time on the streets of Liberty City. And according to free newspaper Shortlist, portly funny man Ricky Gervais will appear in the game performing at the local comedy club. You'll be able to watch the star of The Office and Extras cracking gags from his latest Fame show, plus a host of brand new exclusive material never heard before. Not a fan of Ricky? Then just blow him away in a hail of bullets (the virtual version, of course).He'll also be appearing elsewhere in the game but won't reveal where. Our money's on one of the radio stations.When the jokes start to wear a bit thin there are plenty of other extracurricular activities to busy yourself with: bowling, darts and Stuff favourite, boozing.We'll be ramping up the excitement in the coming weeks as we get closer to launch, so keep it here for all your GTA news.
