Ricky Gervais is considering playing Glastonbury festival as The Office character David Brent.
Gervais has been touring as Brent, the boss with an incredible lack of self-awareness from the original UK version of the TV series The Office, as part of a comedy show alongside his band “Foregone Conclusion”.
When asked by the Radio Times whether or not he’d consider playing a slot at Glastonbury 2014, Gervais said: “It could happen. It would be amazing for Ricky Gervais but I don’t know if I can justify David Brent playing Glastonbury because David Brent can’t become a real pop star. He can’t play venues outside the story.”
Gervais is set to play two UK shows at the Oxford New Theatre and Hammersmith Apollo as part of a new TV series he’s working on. He’ll playing the venues on May 14th and 16th respectively.
