Ricky Gervais Performs As David Brent At His Movie Premiere
All David Brent ever wanted was to be recognised by the British public. To spread his musical seed far and wide and make the dream a reality. And, last night, that came to fruition.
Yep, at the premiere of Gervais' new movie Life On The Road, the star of The Office took to the mic in Leicester Square donned as Brent to perform with his band Foregone Conclusion in front of a slightly-bemused crowd.
The film, which follows the trials and tribulations of the former Wernham Hogg manager as he embarks on a world tour, signals the latest Brent appearance since his Comic Relief sketch in 2013.
Gervais said in a red carpet interview that he sent a demo of 'Slough' to the late David Bowie prior to his death and apparently he loved it.
Bowie once made a cameo appearance on Extras.
David Brent: Life On The Road hits cinemas August 19, 2016.
