The Office: You'll Never Get 100% On This David Brent Quiz

How well do you know the Brentmeister General?

It cannot be understated just how much of an influence Ricky Gervais' The Office has had on sitcom TV over the last 20 years - from its own hugely successful U.S. remake to the glut of mockumentary shows which sprung up in its wake.

And while the series is undeniably an ensemble effort, what would it be without Gervais' toe-curlingly cringe-worthy boss, David Brent?

A figure both contemptible and relatable, Brent represents every boss who lacks the self-awareness to accept where the barrier between the personal and the professional lies.

Brent's buffoonery was ultimately the source for many of the show's greatest and most embarrassing gags, but beyond the laughs, just how well do you remember David as a character?

Across the show's two series, its beloved Christmas Special, and its more recent film David Brent: Life on the Road, The Office gave us considerable access to Brent not only as a figure of ridicule, but also an achingly human representation of employment in the modern world.

The answers are at the end as ever, so good luck!
