Ricky Gervais promises more David Brent gigs

He tweeted plans to announce 'very exclusive' live shows soon

Comedian Ricky Gervais has promised fans that he will soon be announcing a number of David Brent gigs.

Gervais played his debut live show as his character from The Office last October, performing as David Brent & Foregone Conclusion, with a backing band that included former Razorlight member Andy Burrows.

Brent – best known as former boss and “chilled out entertainer” at Wernham Hogg in BBC sitcom The Office – turned his hand to music last year, having revived the character for the BBC’s Comic Relief and issuing an online series, Learn Guitar With David Brent, the character’s first recurring role since The Office concluded in 2003.

Now, Gervais has taken to Twitter to reveal plans for more shows in the UK, writing:

Dear UK, I will be announcing a couple more very exclusive David Brent gigs soon. Until then, enjoy this again http://t.co/gTQIlMpMMp

Last year Gervais performed two shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, as well as one at Bristol’s Colston Hall. After massive demand for tickets, he hinted at a show at London’s O2 Arena, tweeting: “Oh well, O2 next then :)”.
