Ricky Gervais is coming back to stand-up comedy with one goal in mind — to get canceled.
The 60-year-old is hoping to get fully immersed into cancel culture with his new stand-up show “Armageddon” and push the boundaries of comedy.
“One thing I’ve decided to definitely do, and can’t wait to start on, is my new stand-up show,” the Brit told Heat magazine recently.
The “After Life” star added, “I’m treating it like it’s my last one ever. It won’t be, but I want to put everything into it. I want to try and get cancelled. No, I just want to go all out there.”
“[‘Armageddon’] is about the end of the world and how we’re going to destroy ourselves for lots of reasons, whether it’s media stupidity, or the actual end of the world,” he continued.
He elaborated on this sentiment in a WSJ profile published on Monday, saying that being funny should have no limitations.

Golden globe intro:
I bet he said what some of them WISH they could say, but can’t- if they ever want to work in showbiz again.
Oh yeah, I’m in for this!!!
The look on Tom Hanks face was priceless.
I definitely will be watching that comedy show. Ricky Gervais is savage and funny as hell.
That was hilarious! Still not gonna watch the rest of the show.
I love this guy. I don’t know anything about his politics and I don’t care. He’s funny as hell and that’s what he’s paid to be.
As long as he can find a stage to do his routine...he’ll have full audiences every show.
I’d be there.
