Hot on the heels of his critically-acclaimed TV shows, comic continues world tour into next year
Russell Howard has been extensively touring with his latest show Respite. Due to demand the comedian will continue to tour well into 2020 and has confirmed he will come to the Edinburgh Playhouse for one show during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Tue 18 Aug. Presale tickets for the show are on sale now to ATG Theatre Card holders ahead of the general sale at 10am on Fri 19 Dec.
Hot on the heels of his critically-acclaimed hit Sky One show The Russell Howard Hour, and his Netflix special Recalibrate, Russell returned to touring with new show Respite last year. The new comedy hour is his first stand-up tour since 2017's Round The World which saw him break the record for the biggest English speaking stand-up show in China and play a record-breaking ten night run at the Royal Albert Hall, overtaking eight in a row jointly held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow.
The Respite tour marks Howard's third and largest world tour to date. He has performed to audiences in USA, Canada, the Middle East and Europe. The newly added Edinburgh date means those attending the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2020 can catch Howard among many other acts.
