Gervais has performed numerous Armageddon warm-up shows throughout this year. Back in June, he joked that he had reported his fans “for hate crimes” for laughing at this new material.

“Another amazing audience at @lsqtheatre for my #Armageddon new material night,” Gervais wrote on Twitter. They laughed at things that shouldn’t be laughed at and I have reported them all for hate crimes. I’ll do more soon.”

Earlier this year, Gervais faced criticism over “transphobic” jokes in his Netflix special SuperNature. After the special was released, the comedian defended making “taboo” jokes, saying comedy is for “getting us over taboo subjects so they’re not scary anymore”.
