One of Bristol’s most renowned comedians is set to perform a series of massive homecoming shows in the city.

Russell Howard, who is loved around the world for his daily sightings, will perform seven social distancing shows at Ashton Gate as part of his world tour Respite to visit.

The shows were originally scheduled to take place at Bristol Racecourse, but were moved to the home of Bristol City FC and the Bristol Bears due to the delay in the government’s roadmap to come out of the lockdown.

Howard, who made headlines last year after stepping out of a concert in Bristol because he was being filmed, said: “I am delighted to report that my concerts in Bristol in July may still take place, but due to social distancing we have changed locations and I will now be playing Respite in Bristol City.

“I can’t wait to see you soon.”

The race takes place at Ashton Gate July 5-10 and tickets are on general sale now on the 41-year-old site.

Howard’s 2017 sold-out international tour, Around the world, saw him break the record for the biggest English-speaking stand-up show in China and play a record-breaking 10-night race at the Royal Albert Hall, surpassing eight in a row jointly owned by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow.

The tour culminated with the worldwide release of the Netflix special Recalibrate.

Howard, who studied economics at the University of the West of England, also became the first comedian to perform in Australia and New Zealand after the global lockdown ended earlier this year.

With an ever-growing fan base, Howard has over six million followers on his social media.
