16 Years of The Office – David Brent’s 12 Finest Moments

16 years ago on 9th July 2001 we were first introduced to David Brent, the general manager of Wernham Hogg, a fictitious paper company in Slough, and the role that made Ricky Gervais a household name.

Not only did the show make Gervais a household name, but Mackenzie Crook and Martin Freeman have hardly left our screens since either, since playing the loveable Gareth and Tim. The Office paved the way for the many a mockumentary since, including The Thick Of It, Twenty TwelveW1A, People Just Do Nothing and more recently This Country on BBC Three.

At the heart of The Office and its success was David Brent, a man we all loved to hate. So in honour of this, here are 12 of David Brent’s finest moments…


1. When he sang during a training session…


2. When he released a single AND made a music video…


3. When he compared himself to Jesus…


4. When he gave Keith his appraisal…


5. When he had to make redundancies…


6. When he found himself in yet another awkward situation…


7. When he got involved in a bit of role play…


8. When he laughed, and then sang Simply The Best


9. When he conducted the most awkward interview ever…


10. When he met his blind date…


11. When he offended a girl in a nightclub…


12. And of course, when he fused Flashdance with “MC Hammer shit”…
