Russell Kane’s bringing to town his gut-punch funny, searing, award-winning take on the two years we’ve just gone through, ‘The Essex Variant’.. Hailed as the The Guardian’s Number 1 comedy performance to come out of 2020 – this high-octane show brings nuclear-energy belly laughs and pant-wetting observations which prove laughter really is the best medicine* (*actually, it’s probably hospital medicine).
Russell Kane has two chart-topping, award-bagging podcasts: Man Baggage and BBC Radio 4’s Evil Genius. He is a regular on Channel 4, BBC, and ITV: all the usual shows you see funny people on. He’s also a writer, actor, and presenter. He drinks lots of coffee and is ‘like that in real life’.
He was the first ever comedian to bag the two most prestigious comedy awards on earth in the same year, for the same show: The Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards (formerly The Perrier), and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award, (formerly known as the Barry Award). He’s also a raving bighead that likes listing his achievements.
Tickets for all dates are on sale now from www.russellkane.co.uk. More dates will be added in due course.
As a multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, social media star, author and scriptwriter, Russell has many strings to his bow. Most recently he is known for his two hit shows BBC Radio 4 show Evil Genius and his podcast Man Baggage.
Russell is well known for his viral Facebook Kaneing videos. For the past few years, Russell’s regular topical rant videos have grown from strength-to-strength, garnering hundreds of thousands of views and constant media attention.
Russell has published two books: Son Of A Silverback in 2019 (Bantam Press) and The Humorist in 2012 (Simon and Schuster).
