COMEDIAN Ricky Gervais will play a second night at York Barbican after "the incredible demand" for tickets this morning for the opening night of his SuperNature world tour on May 13.

Tickets for May 14 have gone on sale immediately at, on 0203 356 5441 or in person from the Barbican box office.

Gervais, star and writer of the television series The Office, Extras, Derek and this year's After Life, will be presenting his sceptical look at the absurdity of superstition, magic and all unsubstantiated beliefs, all leading to a celebratory conclusion that nature is already super enough.

The 57-year-old Reading stand-up, actor, director, screenwriter, singer and awards ceremony host last played York Barbican on February 28 2017, when he tackled such taboo subjects as rape, death and terrorism, as well as nut allergies, in his Humanity tour show.
