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.

Direct from a UK arena tour including two shows at London’s Wembley Arena and runs in Europe, America and Canada, the New Zealand premiere of Respite will commence on Monday 27 July 2020 in Auckland and will be followed by performances in Wellington and Christchurch. Breaking the record for the biggest ever stand-up show in China on his last tour, Russell will then return to play Shanghai and Beijing and go on to perform in India and South Africa, visiting 5 continents, 24 countries and 51 cities.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 3pm on March 6. The Live Nation pre-sale begins at 2pm Monday, March 4.

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.

Russell has a social media following of over 3.4 million Facebook fans around the world with more followers than any other British comedian.
