Russell Kane Live: The Essex Variant! comes to the City Hall on Sunday, September 11, 2022

The TV and radio star is bringing his “gut-punch funny, searing, award-winning take on the two years we’ve just gone through”. His publicity promises: “This high-octane show brings nuclear-energy belly laughs and pant-wetting observations which prove laughter really is the best medicine* (*actually, it’s probably hospital medicine)”.

Russell hosts chart-topping podcasts Man Baggage and BBC Radio 4’s Evil Genius. He is a regular on Channel 4, BBC, and ITV on comedy panel shows.
