Ricky Gervais has broken yet another record for his Armageddon comedy tour

Ricky Gervais has broken yet another record for his Armageddon comedy tour

'There’s a weight of intellect behind my comedy, yeah?'

Ricky Gervais' Armageddon tour has broken yet another record.

The creator of The Office has spent the best part of the last year travelling the world, sharing his unique take on modern life with audiences far and wide:

And it'll come as no surprise to anyone that people have absolutely loved it.

Selling out shows wherever he's been, Gervais has performed to absolutely massive audiences.

Earlier this year, the former XFM presenter officially made it into the Guinness Book of Records following his show at The Hollywood Bowl, which raked in over $1.75 million (£1.41m). Not bad for a night's work, eh?

"Thank you Hollywood Bowl for one of the most surreal nights of my life," he said at the time. "What a venue. What a crowd."

Gervais continued: "I can’t even imagine what my mum would think about me playing the Hollywood Bowl.

"I hope she would be horrified by the language, tell me I looked fat, and be secretly proud."

Speaking previously about his entry into the iconic book, Gervais said it would have been a huge source of pride for his late mum.

"When I was little, I'd get the the Guinness Book of Records for Xmas every year," he wrote on social media.

"The whole family would read it. I think my mum would be prouder of me being in this book than anything else I've done."

But never one to rest on his laurels, Gervais recently added to that impressive accolade when he sold out his show at Toronto’s 20,000 capacity Scotiabank Arena on 10 August, the biggest of any British comic in Canada.

Speaking to LADbible about the latest feat, he said: "I think Armageddon is my favourite tour so far.

"To break the world record at the Hollywood Bowl was surreal, but breaking the record for Canada was very special too as I’m half Canadian. Why else would I have a daft surname like Gervais?"

And if he wasn't rolling in it already, Ricky's worldwide tour has so far made an incredible $32m (£26.4m) along the way, which isn't too shabby... just as long as some of that cash gets spent on his cat.

The tour is set for its final date at Wembley Arena in London on 13 December, ahead of the release of his next Netflix special.

So those of us who didn't manage to get tickets for one of his gigs can at least pretend we were there, right?
