RUSSELL HOWARD TO TOUR AUSTRALIA IN 2017!
TUESDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2015 - Live Nation and Melbourne Comedy Festival today announced that
one of the 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
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
