Ricky said: ‘Thousands of people paying hard earned cash to come and see you live is such a privilege. You’d better have something different, interesting and funny to say.Humanity is my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet. It’s probably my most personal too. I feel I may as well tell you everything before I die.
Hope you enjoy it. Or not. There are no refunds. Just like life, I guess.’
Let’s hope it makes us properly laugh, like this:
The funnyman added: ‘I’m thrilled to be able to take this tour around the world and look forward to performing stand-up to a Canadian audience for the first time. Watch this space for even more dates being added too. I’m coming to your town! (If your town has an arena and a 5-star hotel with a helipad.)’
