When was Ricky Gervais’ last tour?

Ricky last toured large venues earlier this year to conclude his SuperNature tour. The tour originally began in 2020 but further dates were added following the pandemic.

During SuperNature he completed dates across the UK at venues including the London Palladium, Leeds First Direct Arena, and more.

The comedy content on tour sought to debunk the supernatural and saw Gervais conclude that actual nature is super enough. The tour, as well as his previous ‘Humanity’ tour, was filmed for Netflix.

Will Ricky Gervais tour in 2023?

Ricky Gervais tested out new material throughout 2022, doing small work-in-progress shows which in the comedy game means the act is working on new stuff for an upcoming tour.

He announced the first official date for the 'Armageddon Tour' in December 2022, and has performed across the UK and US with this material since.

Now, the comedy star has confirmed that he will be adding even more dates to his tour!

When is Ricky Gervais touring the UK?

Ricky Gervais' expanded 'Armageddon Tour' will take him across the UK throughout April, May, July and September as well as a few dates in October and December.

What can we expect from a Ricky Gervais tour?

Ricky is notorious for below-the-belt comments and risqué content, and we expect that he will continue to take this humour to new heights on his next tour.

The only insight we have so far into the upcoming tour is its title: ‘Armageddon’. Meaning “a drastic and catastrophic conflict, especially one likely to destroy the human race”, we predict that Gervais will be entering into deep topics of political, social and economic issues as well as the future of humankind mixed with his staple twist of humour.
