Award-winning comedian, actor, writer, and director Ricky Gervais has today announced further massive arena dates on his Armageddon World Tour including dates at 3Arena on 11 & 12 July, 2023.
“Ricky Gervais is Britain’s biggest comedian. He sells out arenas around the world,” said Ian Coburn, Live Nation.
“When I was invited to play the iconic Hollywood Bowl, I said “What if it rains?” This pretty much sums up how British people think,” said Gervais.
Gervais’s 2021 tour SuperNature was a huge success and subsequently became one of the most watched comedy specials of the year on Netflix, when it aired in May 2022. Netflix have already bought the rights to Armageddon, which will stream as Ricky’s next Netflix special in early 2024.
As Gervais has done with his previous tours, profits made on the more expensive Platinum tickets for his shows will be donated to charity.
Creator and star of ‘The Office’ and ‘Extras’, Ricky Gervais has won three Golden Globes®, two Primetime Emmys® and seven BAFTAS. ‘The Office’ is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes. The NBC version is the most successful US remake of a British show in more than 30 years.
Considered the most influential British comedian since Charlie Chaplin, Gervais is an award-winning stand-up comedian, with six international tours to date. His live stand up show ‘Fame’ became the fastest selling UK stand-up show in history.
Gervais can most recently be seen in his Netflix stand up special “SuperNature,” which premiered in May 2022. He also starred in the dark comedy “After Life,” which he created, directed and executive produced. The series premiered to rave reviews and fan response in 2019, and returned for an equally lauded second season in April 2020. The third and final season premiered in January 2022, also to high acclaim.
