It's moments like this that you realise that Jimmy Fallon and his foppery are a damaging waste of time and energy.

Renowned atheist Ricky Gervais was a guest on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' last night and while things began relatively chipper with Gervais talking about Trump, David Brent. his musical past and his favourite tweet of all time, things got a bit more interesting in the show's second segment with him. 

When they came back, Ricky Gervais proved himself a formidable opponent for Colbert when the conversation turned to belief, religion and atheism and really makes you wish this is what late night chat shows could be all the time.
