Ricky Gervais: Armageddon, the 2023 stand-up special from The Office star, will be published on Netflix on 25th December.

The show was recorded at the London Palladium earlier this year, as part of the comedian's latest stand-up tour. Playing 85 sell-out arena dates across the globe, Gervais broke a number of records in the process of this tour, including entering the Guinness World Records for the highest grossing stand-up show when he took over £1.4m for a date at the Hollywood Bowl.

Armageddon will be the third Netflix special from Gervais, following on from Humanity (2018) and SuperNature (2022).

The blurb explains: "The BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning mind behind The Office, Extras and After Life takes the stage for a provocative new stand-up special, riffing on the end of humanity, political correctness, family weddings, funerals and Artificial Intelligence."

Ricky Gervais says: "For the next 2000 years people will remember the 25th December as the day Armageddon was released on Netflix."
