About 13 years on from his appearance in the documentary series The Office, a documentary film crew is once again following the life of David Brent. He is now working as a rep for cleaning goods distributor but still harbours dreams of making it big in the music business. Acting on this, he takes three weeks off work and tours with a new-look version of Foregone Conclusion, the band he was in in the 90s (he's the only remaining original member, for various reasons...).

Brent more fun in an office
12 February 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

David Brent (Ricky Gervais) gained a little notoriety from the BBC2 documentary The Office. The film crew has caught up with him once again. He now aspires to be a singer-songwriter in between doing sales calls. His band is called Foregone Conclusion. He is now working at Lavichem selling toilet products. He continues to be the same clueless self-obsessed idiot as before. He signed half-black rapper Dom Johnson and starts writing for him. He decides to spend all his money to go on tour with his music.

Brent in an office continues to be good comedy. When he's on his concert tour, the comedy becomes flatter and more one dimensional. Everybody is smarter than him and sees the idiocy of his songs. Some of the songs are actually good in its fun stupidity. This is for those who love the original Office but also those who like Gervais' brand of comedy.
