david brent: renaissance man clips

David Brent, Manager of Wernham-Hogg Slough, is a true Renaissance Man for the 21st century. He is an accomplished dancer, poet, philosopher, satirist, and perhaps most impressively for these times, football player.

Renaissance Man

dancer: See David dance. It is a sight to behold. David likes to perform on Comic Relief day and whenever he has a bit too much to drink down Chasers.


Renaissance Man

philosopher: David's approach to life is inspired by many great philosophers. Confucious, Descartes, Rimbaud and Botham.


Renaissance Man

poet: 'I froze your tears and made a dagger...'


Renaissance Man

satirist: David has a cutting and incisive sense of humour. His heroes are Milligan, Cleese, Everett, Sessions.


Renaissance Man

humanitarian: David is the Bob Geldof of the paper merchant world. The bi-annual Comic Relief day is rigidly adhered to at Wernham-Hogg. Comedy and saving lives - what could be better?


Renaissance Man

new man: Antiquated chauvinism is a stranger to David. He has grasped the New Man nettle with both hands and run with it.


Renaissance Man

footballer: David is a footballing wunderkind. Ferdinand, Owen, Becks and Neville eat your hearts out.
