For Ricky Gervais, comedy means the freedom to say everything he's not supposed to. Following his worldwide hit Humanity, the British actor, writer and stand-up performer's first full-length live show SuperNature is another no-holds-barred showcase for one of the most fearless wits in contemporary comedy. His sixth live tour, SuperNature displays the stage prowess Gervais first established when his show Rubbernecker became a hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2001. That same year, Gervais and his regular collaborator Stephen Merchant changed the course of comedy television with the BBC debut of The Office. A groundbreaking mockumentary about a dysfunctional workplace, the series yielded a rich variety of iconic characters, Gervais' most famous creation being general manager David Brent.
