After the global success of Netflix special Recalibrate, The Russell Howard Hour – which spawned over 127 million views worldwide on social media – and 2017 international record-breaking sell-out tour Round The World, RUSSELL HOWARD, one of the UK’s most successful comedians, returns to Australia with his largest world stand-up tour to date, Respite.
Due to an overwhelming demand new shows have been added in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
QPAC – TUESDAY, 14 JULY 2020
THE STAR – FRIDAY, 17 JULY 2020
PALAIS THEATRE – TUESDAY, 21 JULY 2020
RIVERSIDE THEATRE – FRIDAY, 24 JULY 2020
Direct from a UK arena tour including two shows at London’s Wembley Arena and runs in Europe, America and Canada, the Australian premiere of Respite kicks off in July next year.
In addition to Russell breaking a record in China on his 2017 sell-out international tour, Round the World, he played 10 consecutive sold out nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, breaking the venue’s record previously held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow for eight shows in a row. The tour led to a global release of Netflix special, Recalibrate.
Russell most recently returned to our screens to offer his unique and acclaimed perspective on international news and current affairs with the second series of The Russell Howard Hour, which was broadcast simultaneously in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Every episode is available to watch worldwide on Russell’s YouTube channel which has over 645,000 subscribers. Series one attracted over 127 million global views across social media and a further series three and four were commissioned whilst series two was on air.
