RussellHoward_Wonderbox(2)

RUSSELL HOWARD announces two very special dates for his 2014 Wonderbox world tour, which will see the Bristolian return to his hometown, performing for two nights and recording his brand new DVD, at the Bristol Hippodrome on 15th and 16th August 2014.

RUSSELL will embark on his brand new world tour Wonderbox in February 2014, with arena shows across the UK and Ireland, including four consecutive nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as well as international dates in America, Australia and New Zealand. Tickets for the Bristol Hippodrome dates are on general sale from 9.00am today (Friday 2nd August). For further information visit www.russell-howard.co.uk.

Russell said: “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be recording my next DVD at the Bristol Hippodrome. To quote my mum, “it’s gonna be gert lush”.

Wonderbox will be RUSSELL’s first live stand-up show for three years and follows on from his three-times-extended 2011 tour Right Here, Right Now, which included three sold out dates at London’s O2 and saw RUSSELL perform to over 240,000 fans nationwide.

RUSSELL HOWARD has released three best-selling live DVDs: Right Here, Right Now (2011), Russell Howard Live – Dingledodies (2009) and Russell Howard Live (2008).

Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Three’s most successful entertainment series and recently voted the ‘Best Ever BBC Three Show’ by Digital Spy users, taking the top spot ahead of Gavin and Stacey, Little Britain and Being Human, peaks at over 5 million viewers a week and is frequently one of the most watched shows on BBC iPlayer, regularly trending globally on Twitter during each episode. RUSSELL HOWARD has over 2.5 million fans on Facebook and alongside LEE EVANS, is the joint-third most searched for comedian on Google.
