The 61-year-old comedian however reportedly increased his security for his new and upcoming gigs within and outside the city limits, this was done in the wake of the attack on Sir Salman Rushdie. A source claimed that Ricky did so to keep a close eye on the audience and that he will be greatly calm and relaxed knowing there is someone out there watching the crowd.
Sir Salman Rushdie was attacked earlier this month while speaking at a seminar by a member of the audience, his condition was extremely critical leading him to lose an eye, and the nerves from his right arm being severed. Since the incident, Ricky has amped up his security for his safety reasons, the source also claimed that Ricky is not taking any chances, he has spent a great deal on this security situation, and they have been positioned at every aisle. All this is done to make sure that Ricky is relaxed during his shows and can keep calm from within. Ricky is currently gearing up to perform a series of gigs in London, Leicester Square Theatre, therefore for him this security is necessary.
In light of the incident that took place with Sir Salman Rushdie, it is no news that Ricky wishes to be safe and secure whilst he is entertaining his fans and audience, all while being relaxed and calm within without having to worry about anyone attacking him onstage.
We wish Sir Salman Rushdie a speedy recovery, and Ricky all the best for his upcoming gigs.
