Ricky Gervais Used To Be Pretty In His New Wave Band

I had heard tell of the fable that Ricky Gervais, before his days of comedy or pissing people off in Hollywood, was in a New Wave pop duo with a moderate amount of success in the 80s. Well thankfully, that music video has been unearthed. He looks quite different and clearly much younger than from his appearance on David Letterman’s show in March 2010.

Ricky was the lead singer of a band called Seona Dancing, which was a band he was in with high school friend Bill Macrae in 1982. As you can tell, they were glossy, pretty and wore nearly as much makeup as Boy George. The pair were signed to London Records and released two singles, including the song “Bitter Heart,” which you can watch after the jump!
