Actor, writer and controversial comic Ricky Gervais has added yet more dates to the 2023 stint of his Armageddon UK tour.


Ever since he wrapped up the first leg of the tour in December 2022, Gervais has continued to book additional dates to meet high levels of demand from fans.

Now, he’s added 14 extra UK shows this spring, with stops in Liverpool, London, Cardiff and more as well as some additional bookings in Europe and the US.

The comedian also recently announced that the Armageddon tour would be appearing on Netflix in the future with the tweet: "Loads of people who couldn’t get tickets asking me if #Armageddon will be on Netflix. The answer is Yes! I will continue touring it throughout 2023 and then it will stream on Netflix around the world in 2024."

Previously, Gervais hadn’t been on tour since 2019 with SuperNature, but now he’s compensating with this extended run of shows, suitable for viewers 16 and over.
