Ricky Gervais achieved worldwide success with his hit TV comedy series, The Office and Extras, which were co-written with his good friend Stephen Merchant. Between 2010 and 2012, Ricky terrorised Hollywood's A-list with his raucous hosting of the annual Golden Globe awards ceremony.
Ricky Gervais has previously completed four UK stand-up comedy tours: Science (2010), Fame (2007), Politics (2004) and Animals (2003). He is currently working on a new stand-up show called Humanity.
Ricky Gervais is also making a new film, Life On The Road, which follows his The Office alter ego David Brent as he goes on tour 15 years after being made redundant from Wernham Hogg. The rock mockumentary is expected to premiere in 2015.
