One of UK’s most successful live comedians, Russell Howard, will return to Australia in 2017.
After completely selling out his Wonderbox tour here in 2014, Russell is coming back with a brand new live show, Round the World, and this time bringing it to Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.
The new dates will see Russell play London and a further 29 international cities including: New York, Wellington, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Oslo, Washington DC, Chicago, Dublin, Helsinki, Vancouver, Reykjavik and San Francisco.
Wonderbox, Russell’s previous sell-out international tour in 2014, saw him entertain 285,000 fans at 40 shows across the UK and Ireland (in London alone he played four shows at the Royal Albert Hall, two shows at the O2 Arena and one show at Wembley Arena), as well as sold-out runs in the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
“Howard has become one of the most successful stand-ups of his generation.” – The Telegraph UK
“Howard’s success is down to the way his comic outlook strikes a chord… He’s not afraid to be silly and gently whimsical but he never disappears up his own arse. And his attitude is always sunnily optimistic, taking delight in the daft little details of his life.” – The Guardian UK
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10am (local time) on Tuesday, November 24.
Proudly presented by Live Nation and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, an exclusive presale will open on Friday 20 November at 10am.
