Shows that follow include a pair of peformances at the Chicago Theatre on May 24th and 25th. Gervais will head to Canada with two shows in Toronto at Massey Hall on July 14th and 15th. The tour will come back stateside with a show at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California on October 28th and 30th.

The upcoming run will mark Gervais' 5th world tour.

For fans of his infamous Golden Globe shows, the tour will act as an opportunity to see Gervais in a smaller, live setting. According to the comedian: "Humanity will be my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet. It’s probably my most personal too. I feel I may as well tell you everything before I die."
