Ricky Gervais & Elmo Hit Carnegie Hall
Ricky Gervais was joined onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall by a special guest – Sesame Street‘s Elmo!
As part of the New York Comedy Festival, Ricky, 48, performed his first set at world-renowned Carnegie Hall on Thursday (November 5). The British comic gave his only U.S. performance this year to a sold-out crowd.
After his set was over, Ricky returned to the stage for a surprise encore, asking the crowd, “what’s black and white and red all over?” and announcing his surprise guest, Elmo! The tuxedo clad two sang “New York, New York” together.
