Ricky Gervais (60) is once again brushed on riot. The controversial comedian is all set to “get canceled” with his new stand-up routine. He announced this in an interview with the British magazine “Heat”.

“Armageddon” is the name of Gervais’ upcoming prank, ie end of the world. And the comedian and actor means that literally. “I’m treating it like it’s my last,” says the “After Life” star of his program. “It won’t be, but I want to give it my all. I want to try to get canceled. No, I just want to give everything there.”

“Armageddon” will actually be about the end of the world: “It’s about the end of the world and that we will destroy ourselves for many reasons, be it through the stupidity of the media or through the actual end of the world.”

Ricky Gervais on cancel culture and irony

Ricky Gervais recently spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the so-called “cancel culture”, which would like to ban everything that is undesirable. The problem for him comes from the fact that some people confuse the subject of a joke with its goal. “You can joke about anything, but it depends on what the point of the gag is.” However, according to the comedian, many people have a hard time recognizing irony.
