The star, who has recently enjoined success with Netflix show Afterlife, is to appear at the Assembly Hall Theatre in August.
The creator of The Office, Extras, and Derek is returning to the 1,000-seat venue as part of a warm-up for his sixth stand-up tour, ‘SuperNature’.
Considered one of the most influential British comedians of all time, Ricky Gervais is returning to the stage following the global success of his recent Netflix stand-up special Humanity, which was his first in seven years.
He appeared at the Assembly Hall in April 2019 as a warm-up for that show, when he poked fun at the town, especially its use of the prefix ‘Royal’.
The funnyman, who is originally from Reading in Berkshire, is set to play two nights in Tunbridge Wells on Monday and Tuesday August 9 and 10.
He broke the news to fans on Tuesday [July 27] on Twitter, saying: “Gonna do a couple of #SuperNature gigs in Tunbridge Wells & Manchester in August. Tickets on sale Saturday. Stay tuned for details.”
Tickets for the Tunbridge Wells shows, which are expected to sell out fast, are due to go on sale tomorrow [Saturday July 31] at 10am on the Assembly Hall website: assemblyhalltheatre.co.uk
Circle members of the theatre will get a two-hour priority booking window that starts at 8am on Saturday.
Fans of Ricky Gervais may also be able to buy tickets for the Tunbridge Wells show from the O2’s website: theo2.co.uk, which is selling half the tickets for the Assembly Hall performance.
