Ricky Gervais returns to the stage this year in his first stand-up tour in seven years – Humanity.
This will be Gervais's fifth live stage show. His previous shows have received critical acclaim and played to sold out audiences.
Gervais said: “I chose the best and worst year to return to stand up. It’s great in the sense that there’s lots of shit for me to rant about, but it’s bad in the sense that my ‘schtick’ has always been playing the arrogant, misinformed know-it -all, who says the wrong thing. It’s worked well for me. But now I worry half the room agrees with those things without seeing the irony. It’s a tricky one. Still. …. Humanity is turning out to be my best stand up yet. I think it’s because truth is so important now.”
