DUE to high demand, funnyman Russell Kane has added an extra night in Altrincham as part of his mammoth 'Right Man, Wrong Age’ tour.

The comedian will be performing at The Altrincham Garrick Playhouse on Thursday June 15, as well as the previously announced date on Friday June 16.

Multi-award winning presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter Russell is best known as the star of BBC3’s Stupid Man, Smart Phone and host of three series of BBC3‘s Live At The Electric, with appearances on BBC’s Live At The Apollo, BBC1’s Children In Need, BBC1’s Question Time, BBC3’s Unzipped, ITV2’s Celebrity Juice and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now!

Russell was nominated four times for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award before winning ‘Best Show’ in 2010. He then went onto make history as the first comedian to win both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Barry Award in one year.

Russell has also released two best-selling DVDs; his award-winning show Smokescreens & Castles was recorded in front of his home crowd at the Palace Theatre in Westcliff-on-Sea in 2011, and Russell’s newest DVD, a special one off show ‘Russell Kane Live’, was recorded in London’s West End in October 2015. Both are available now through Universal Pictures (UK).

Russell is currently host of the ‘The Saturday Show’ on Virgin Radio, alongside Angela Scanlon.

In February 2017, Russell took part in The Red Nose Convoy for Comic Relief, travelling from Kenya to Uganda delivering crucial supplies and seeing first hand how money raised is changing lives. A documentary of the trip was shown on BBC1 in March and helped raise further funds for the charity.

Russell’s 'Right Man, Wrong Age' tour is his biggest selling tour to date, selling over 100,000 tickets so far and being extended three times since its debut in February 2016.
