UK comedian Russell Howard coming to Dubai this year

Quick-witted TV star and stand-up comedy master Russell Howard has been confirmed to bring his latest global tour to Dubai later this year.

Dubai Opera will play host to Bristolian comedian three years after his last stand-up appearance in Dubai, when he sold out three nights at the Dubai College Auditorium in 2017 (having dropped by the Time Out offices first.

Now, the comedian is set to bring his Respite world tour to the city for one-night only on Friday June 26.

Having spent the last few years smashing it on UK television, thanks to his show the Russell Howard Hour and his previous tour Recalibrate, the comedian will head to the emirate on a comedy high.

He’s broken records around the world in recent years, including in London where he spent ten consecutive nights headlining the world-famous Royal Albert Hall, breaking Frank Sinatra’s long-standing record. He also holds the record for the largest-ever stand-up show in China.

There’s currently an early-bird discount of 20 percent on tickets for a limited, and currently unspecified, time so get in fast if you want to get tickets on the cheap. The best available price on tickets at the time of writing is Dhs150, with prices ranging up to Dhs360 for front seats (if you fancy taking the risk of sitting down the front at a comedy gig, be our guest).

Don’t miss out on the chance of seeing one of the top comedians around making his long-awaited return to Dubai.
