Ricky Gervais bringing David Brent back for London gigs

Funnyman Ricky Gervais is reprising his socially-awkward The Office character David Brent for a series of gigs in London. Gervais took to Twitter to announce Brent’s musical comeback, revealing he’ll be taking the bumbling boss to the stage for “a couple of very cheap, very low key warm up gigs” with The Office band Foregone Conclusion next month (Oct13).
The comedian has turned down several offers to record an album of Brent-related music, but he’s not new to the industry – he once fronted early 1980s new wave band Seona Dancing.
He recently reintroduced his Brent character in a series of YouTube videos titled Learn Guitar With David Brent.
