Ricky Gervais and Netflix strike up another comedy special

Before his first special comes out, Ricky Gervais is already coming back to Netflix for a second helping. His first - Humanity - comes out with in a few months.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the second special has been "preemptively" bought by the streamer. Both stem from a deal way back in October by the streamer and Gervais. Humanity comes from the comedian's then world tour and was shot at London's Eventim Apollow.

These two are Gervais's first standup projects on Netflix. The comedian previously released the dry Derek (we reviewed seasons one and two) and The Office U.K. spinoff, Life on the Road, which was released last February.
