Ricky Gervais has been blasted for humiliating trans people in his new Netflix show SuperNature by joking about ‘old fashioned' and 'new women with beards and c**ks' - but some fans have said it is the 'funniest stand-up ever'.

The comedian, 60, starts the show by describing comedy to the audience as 'basically a bloke talking', before purposely failing to recall any 'funny female comedians'.

And just minutes into his opening monologue, Gervais yawns to the crowd as he talks about 'those old-fashioned women, you know, with wombs'.

Talking to the audience about cancel culture and the transgender issues, he says: 'Ah women. Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned women, you know the ones with wombs? Those f***ing dinosaurs.  

'I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we’ve been seeing lately. The ones with beards and c***s. They’re as good as gold, I love them. 

'And now the old-fashioned ones say "oh, they want to use our toilets". Why shouldn’t they use your toilets? For ladies! They are ladies — look at their pronouns!'

Acting out a discussion, he adds: 'What about this person isn’t a lady? "Well, his penis." Her penis, you f***ing bigot! "What if he rapes me?’ What if she rapes you, you f***ing TERF w***e?'

Discussing Kevin Hart's decision to remocarve himself from hosting the Oscars in 2018 after historical homophobic tweets emerged, Gervais continues: 'You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future. You don’t know who the dominant mob will be.

Jimmy Carr is slammed over Holocaust joke in Netflix comedy special His Dark Material 

Jimmy, 49, sparked criticism in February over a clip from his Netflix special His Dark Material, which saw him joke that the 'thousands of gypsies killed by the Nazis' was a 'positive' effect of the Holocaust.

In a widely shared clip from his Netflix show, Jimmy joked about the horror of the Holocaust and 'six million Jewish lives being lost'.

As a punchline, he then made a disparaging remark about the deaths of thousands of gypsies at the hands of the Nazis.

'But they never mention the thousands of gypsies that were killed by the Nazis. No one ever wants to talk about that, because no one ever wants to talk about the positives,' Carr quipped to a laughing audience.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman branded the joke 'unacceptable', while Health Secretary Sajid Javid urged people to boycott the one-hour special.

Jewish comedian David Baddiel, 57, was also among swathes of other people to slam Jimmy over the gag.

David said: 'You can obviously tell a Holocaust joke that is cruel and inhumane and mean spirited and racist.

'Or you can tell one that targets the oppressors, or draws attention to the fundamental evil of it, or shines and light on the humanity of the victims.

'It's not the subject matter of the joke that counts, it's the specifics of the individual joke. Clearly, Jimmy Carr's was the former.'

Meanwhile, Conservative MP and Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries told BBC News that the gag was 'abhorrent'.
