Russelling up plenty of gags

Comedian Russell Howard will add a major winter extension to the UK leg of his sold-out 2014 Wonderbox world tour.

This will include a date at Capital FM Arena Nottingham on December 15.

Almost 200,000 UK fans have seen or are due to see Russell in the UK on the Wonderbox tour, including four sold-out nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, before embarking on sold-out runs in the USA, Australia and New Zealand from May. The new dates will see a further 85,000 tickets available at arenas across the UK.

Russell Howard is one of the hottest properties on the UK comedy scene.

For many years, he was one of the star performers on BBC2’s Mock The Week before going on to enjoy even more success with his own BBC3 show, Russell Howard’s Good News.

He has also been a big hit on the live scene, thanks to some of his touring shows, including the likes of Dingledodies, which have brought him a whole new legion of fans.

Tickets are priced at £30.80 (includes administration fee).

Tickets can be booked online at www.capitalfmarena.com/online/russellhoward, via 0843 373 3000 or in person at Ticketing & Customer Services, Bolero Square, The Lace Market, Nottingham, NG1 1LA.
