Ricky Gervais: Armageddon

Ricky Gervais: Armageddon

This show is no longer running at The London Palladium.

Award-winning comedian, actor, writer, and director Ricky Gervais returns to the prestigious London Palladium this autumn with his show, Armageddon.

Gervais’s 2021 tour SuperNature was a huge success and subsequently became one of the most watched comedy specials of the year on Netflix, when it aired in May 2022. Netflix have already bought the rights to Armageddon, which will stream as Ricky’s next Netflix special in early 2024.

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 the creator and star of The Office, Extras, Derek, and the critically acclaimed recent Netflix hit After Life.

Gervais has won countless awards, and has enjoyed huge critical success for the outstanding first two series of After Life, with the third having launched on Netflix in January 2022. His hit series The Office is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with eight remakes.

Following the global success of his Netflix stand-up special Humanity – which was his first in 7 years – Gervais returned to stages once in again in 2019 with his latest stand-up show SuperNature. The tour included 15 nights at the prestigious The London Palladium, two nights at Wembley Arena, as well as many sold out venues around the world.

Ricky has hosted the Golden Globes awards five times, in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2016 and 2020.
