In huge news, the Assembly Hall Theatre in Royal Tunbridge Wells will welcome Ricky Gervais back to the stage on 9 and 10 August as part of his official SuperNature shows. Considered one of the most influential British comedians since Charlie Chaplin, (he received the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy 2016 BAFTA/LA) Ricky Gervais is returning to stage with SuperNature, following the global success of his recent Netflix stand-up special Humanity, which was his first in seven years.

The creator and star of The Office, Extras, Derek, and the critically acclaimed recent hit After Life (Netflix), Ricky Gervais has won countless awards. Having enjoyed huge critical success for the outstanding first series of After Life, which was released on Netflix in March 2019, Ricky has since written and finished filming on a second series, which landed on Netflix in 2020. His hit series The Office is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes.

Ricky Gervais last appeared at the AHT in March 2019 for the warm up shows for this very tour and Theatre Director JJ Almond speaks excitedly about welcoming him back: “We are so excited to welcome Ricky Gervais back to the Assembly Hall Theatre stage for two back to back shows. This feels incredibly special – based on his warm up shows with us in 2019, these promise to be two of the town’s biggest and best nights of the year and a special moment for the theatre.
