With his most cohesive and heart-on-sleeve show yet, it's good to have him back

Why See Ricky Gervais?

The British comic superstar returns!

Controversial British comic Ricky Gervais is headed back this way - for his first global tour in seven years, since his Out of England I & II Tour in 2010. With Gervais promising "Humanity is my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet", be prepared for his irascible and caustic sense of humor, that has got considerably darker in the last 12 months following various political upheavals! 2016 marked a huge year for Gervais, with his cinematic release David Brent: Life On The Road and Netflix project Special Correspondents. He also garnered the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy, and hosted the Golden Globes, memorably taking aim at Mel Gibson's 2006 arrest, and raising his ire! Well it's not Ricky if he's not upsetting somebody!

Promised as his most organic and confessional stand-up tour yet, Gervais will be headed to Canada for the very first time in July, where he hopes that his deadpan humor will be welcomed as much as it is in the States! The creator of inept manager David Brent, The Office is considered to be the most successful British sitcom of all time, spawning a memorable US remake starring Steve Carell. The Humanity tour kicks off this summer and hits the The Chicago Theatre in Chicago , IL , Closed May 25, 2017
