Initially due to perform a six-show run at the Bristol Hippodrome in 2020 as part of an extensive world tour, Russell Howard saw tour plans scuppered as events and venues were postponed and closed as a result of the pandemic.
In the absence of his scheduled performances, Howard became a surprise addition to the first Lakota Gardens programme upon its opening in July, testing new material in front a sell-out hometown audience.
The performances became the catalyst for a busy season of live comedy for Lakota, with Ed Gamble, Phil Wang and Fern Brady among the headliners.
Known for his wildly popular standup performances as well as regular appearances on hit shows like Mock The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Russell Howard has become a household name since emerging from the UK comedy circuit in the mid-2000s.
Over the last few years Howard has found international fame with his own hit shows, including Russell Howard's Good News on BBC Three and The Russell Howard Hour on Sky, and performed several sell-out world tours.
