Ricky Gervais not giving up on David Brent’s rock ’n’ roll fantasy

Taking a break from promoting Muppets Most Wanted to antagonize a different group of easily panicked creatures who would like people to stop messing with their show (fans of the original Office this time), Ricky Gervais has announced that his David Brent character will take another joke a few beats too far with two U.K. concerts this May. Gervais-as-Brent will front the formerly fictional Foregone Conclusion for a pair of gigs in London and Oxford, respectively, tickets for which go on sale this Friday. The performances start to make good on plans the comedian laid out in the fall of 2013, which also include a prospective film about Brent’s latest attempt to break into the music industry. And if you don’t know Brent (or Gervais) by now, you will never never never know he won’t stop until that goal is achieved.
