News: Ricky Gervais Announces Full World Tour For Humanity

Ricky Gervais has announced the first American, Canadian and European dates for Humanity, his first worldwide stand-up tour in seven years. 

2017 marks the comedian’s return to stand-up on an international stage, with shows in New York, LA and Chicago, as well as new dates announced in Europe, playing Reykjavik, Dublin, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Copenhagen this year. 

Gervais’s Humanity tour also marks the comic’s first ever stand-up tour date in Canada, with Gervais visiting Toronto’s Massey Hall on Friday 14th July. The world tour runs from February 21 - October 28.

After selling out his first few UK shows instantly, he has added the second leg of the UK tour with fourteen new dates, including four nights at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo from October 4 - 7.

Ricky Gervais said: “Thousands of people paying hard earned cash to come and see you live is such a privilege. You'd better have something different, interesting and funny to say. Humanity is my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet. It’s probably my most personal too. I feel I may as well tell you everything before I die. Hope you enjoy it. Or not. There are no refunds. Just like life, I guess." 

He added: “I’m thrilled to be able to take this tour around the world and look forward to performing stand-up to a Canadian audience for the first time. Watch this space for even more dates being added too. I’m coming to your town! (If your town has an arena and a 5-star hotel with a helipad)”. 

Gervais has had a busy couple of years with the international theatrical and DVD release, alongside the exclusive partnership with Netflix USA, of feature film David Brent: Life On The Road. 2016 also marked the debut album release of David Brent & Foregone Conclusion - Life On The Road, which became a Top 10 UK hit on the iTunes chart. Special Correspondents, which Gervais wrote, directed and starred in alongside Eric Bana, was launched on Netflix worldwide, and Gervais also hosted the Golden Globes for a fourth time.

This is the award-winning stand-up's fifth tour. His 2007 stand-up show ‘Fame’ was the fastest selling UK stand-up show in history, with 100,000 tickets for the London dates selling out in just 9 minutes.

Tickets go on sale from 10am on Friday, February 24 here.
