Adrian Bohm Presents and LA Comedy Live is proud to announce that one of UK’s most successful comedians, RUSSELL HOWARD, will bring his biggest global comedy tour, ‘ROUND THE WORLD’ to Singapore for the first time on 28 May, 2017 at the Kallang Theatre and Hong Kong on 27 May, 2017 at the Academic Community Hall, Hong Kong Baptist University! Russell last performed in Hong Kong in 2016.
“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

His last arena tour Wonderbox included a four night sell-out run at the Royal Albert Hall, sold out at the O2 and played to audiences across the USA and Australia.

He has four bestselling stand-up DVDs, 2014’s Wonderbox Live, 2011’s Right Here, Right Now, 2008’s Russell Howard Live and 2009’s Russell Howard Live – Dingledodies, which have sold over 619,000 DVDs and all been in the top 5 DVD comedy chart.
