Russell Howard Touring New Zealand in 2017!

Russell Howard Touring New Zealand in 2017!


TUESDAY JANUARY 31, 2017 - One of the UK’s most successful live comedians, RUSSELL HOWARD, will return to New Zealand this year.

After completely selling out his Auckland show of Wonderbox here in 2014, Russell is coming back with a brand new live show, Round the World, and this time bringing it to Wellington and Christchurch.

The new dates will see Russell play London and a further 29 international cities including: New York, Sydney, 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
