What is a Fuzzball?

  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

Just some info. Gervais is all for the American version.

Also, the pilot that you saw is exactly like the British version, but all episodes after that are supposed to be new scripts.


This is excellent news all around. Thank you to Bombadil our Hollywood reporter at FilmBomb! :)

I should also add that on a more cynical note, I imagine that one of the reasons that Gervais loves the show is because of the BIG FAT CHECKS that he'll be cashing because of it. (He's an exec producer, I hear.)


I absolutely agree with your comments! I've watched the first two episodes of the American version and it is just pathetic. I do think that Carell is funny, but he is just so, so, so very wrong for the "David" part. The American "Gareth" character is awful, the American "Tim" and "Dawn" characters have NO chemistry. I'll watch a few more episodes, but so far, I haven't laughed once at the American version (a couple of smiles at a few lines was the most it got out of me).
