The Office was first broadcast in the UK in 2001 and later relaunched in the US in 2005. It is a mockumentary sitcom that shows the day to day life of British office workers. One of the shows creators, Ricky Gervais, features as the boss in the UK version. The set up of the show has been remade in many other countries, including the highly popular US version that is led by Steve Carell. Everyone finds it funny because it showcases the mundanity of everyday office life, the small talk that people engage in, and the things that people get angry about. People can really relate to it.
