A big hit in Britain as well as the USA, The Office genius is rarely seen on TV let alone live on stage, don't miss your chance to be in the room where it happens when Ricky hits your town!

Hilariously, arrogantly self-deprecating, Gervais nails it.

Ricky Gervais kept his end of the bargain you make with an artist when you buy tickets to attend a performance, the first of two in Chicago. He was thought-provoking. He was funny. And he probably was offensive if you weren't a fan, but you probably weren't in the audience anyway. He sticks to his material and doesn't do local, but he did do a shout-out to Chicago and make generous donations to two local charities (PAWS Chicago and Gilda's Club) which made the audience love him even more.

A joke about Caitlyn Jenner brought laughs until he gently reminded us that she actually killed someone driving.
