After Life star Ricky Gervais is to take to the stage in Tunbridge Wells this summer - but you'll need to be quick if you want tickets as last time they sold out in half an hour.
The comic and writer will do two dates in the town's Assembly Hall Theatre ahead of his SuperNature tour.
He will appear at the theatre on Monday, August 9 and Tuesday, August 10, after he played a series of warm-up shows for the tour there back in 2019. Both shows sold out in half an hour last time.
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 - his return to the stage with SuperNature, followed 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 on Netflix last appeared at the Assembly Hall Theatre in March 2019 for the warm-up shows for this tour.
Theatre director JJ Almond said: “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."
The theatre does not operate a waiting list or re-sales. Tickets from secondary ticket sites will also not be honoured and ID will be required upon entering the venue.
