Russell Howard’s third and biggest world tour to date, Respite, will in total take him to 77 cities across 24 countries in 5 continents.
Russell was the first international comedian to perform in New Zealand and Australia since the global lockdown and a sold-out and critically-acclaimed UK arena run in Autumn 2019.
He is set to perform his second UK leg of his world tour including 5 Hammersmith Apollo and 7 hometown venue Bristol Hippodrome shows from 22nd June to the 29th August 2021.
Spring/ Summer 2022 will see Russell perform rescheduled European and North American legs, including two extra performances in Los Angeles in response to selling out two shows in the city and new dates in Philadelphia, Ottawa and Irvine.
All tour tickets are on general sale now and available at russell-howard.co.uk
Whilst touring New Zealand and Australia, Russell filmed a new travelogue punctuated by stand-up comedy, Russell Howard’s Back To The Future Stand Up Show (WT), set to air on Sky later this year.
Russell was most recently on our screens with the fourth season of The Russell Howard Hour, attracting the largest viewing figures since season one, which was the biggest new non-scripted entertainment show to land on Sky One since 2010 and resulted in a recommission for a further two seasons. A huge hit online, content has been seen over 400 million times across social media since the show’s arrival. The fifth, 14 x 60’ season, will see Russell continue to offer his acclaimed satirical take on global news, politics and stories dominating the cultural zeitgeist on Sky One later this year. Every episode is available to watch globally via Russell Howard’s YouTube Channel which has over one million subscribers.
Russell’s 2017 sell-out international tour, Round the World, saw him break the record for the biggest English speaking stand-up show in China and play a record-breaking 10 night run at the Royal Albert Hall, overtaking 8 in a row jointly held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow. The tour culminated with the global release of Netflix Special Recalibrate.
