Ricky Gervais ‘Humanity’ World Tour
UK comedian Ricky Gervais has announced dates for his first standup tour in seven years, fittingly titled “Humanity.” Fans can expect his usual brand of sarcastic, topical humor, kicking off on May 6 in Cardiff, UK. Though the tour will span much of 2017, only seven of the performances will take place in North America, including NYC, Chicago and California. Click here for tickets.
Ween Summer Tour
