Today it has been announced that comedian Russell Kane will be going back on the road next year with his highly-anticipated brand new tour The Fast And The Curious.
He'll be kicking off the tour in Doncaster with a limited run of 17 shows across the country from February to May 2019 which will be a chance to catch Russell up-close-and- personal in smaller more intimate venues before adding further dates in what will likely big larger venues later in the year.
Packing more energy than a Duracell factory, Russell’s RS Turbo laugh engine will motor through love, family and life, once again proving that the fast and the curious amongst us see more stuff and get more done.
As a multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, social media star, author and scriptwriter, Russell’s most recent appearances include his hit TV show BBC3’s Stupid Man, Smart Phone, BBC Radio's podcast Evil Genius, his recently released JOE podcast Boys Don’t Cry, BBC2’s Live At The Apollo and BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.
Other notable television appearances include; Live At The Electric (BBC3), Comic Relief /Sport Relief (BBC1), Children In Need (BBC1), Rage Room (All4), Unzipped (BBC3), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Now! (ITV2).
Russell is well known for his viral Facebook Kaneing videos. For the past 18 months Russell's weekly viral videos have grown from strength-to-strength garnering hundreds of thousands of views and constant media attention. In each episode Russell tackles a diverse range of topics and gets to grips with the talking points of the week. The success of these subsequently led to a three part Kaneing Live special broadcast exclusively on Facebook Live in 2017.
Russell's unique high energy stand-up has won him numerous awards and plaudits including winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards for Best Show in 2010. That same year Russell went on to make history as the first comedian to win both the Edinburgh Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Barry Award in the same year.
Russell’s previous tour, the mammoth Right Man, Wrong Age, was met with phenomenal demand causing it to be extended three times between 2016-2017, performing to sold out venues across the country and acquiring much critical acclaim.
