The tour follows the record-breaking success of Round the World in 2017 and marks the comedian and presenter’s biggest global stand-up tour to date.

Russell Howard launched his Respite tour on 18 September 2019 in Birmingham.

Above, filmed at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Russell chats about what fans coming to the shows can expect, discusses travelling with his mum and explains how he has to alter his set for different audiences around the globe.

Russell Howard began his career with radio work for the BBC, before making regular TV appearances on the likes of Mock the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of 10 Cats.

He has also been snapped up for a Netflix special, releasing Recalibrate at the end of 2017.

He has since secured a number of ongoing series, from his BBC and Sky One residencies to the likes of Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Russell Howard & Mum: USA Road Trip for Comedy Central.
