Comedian Russell Howard to play Grand Opera House, York, at the double next May

In the good news: Russell Howard announces a brace of York gigs for next spring

COMEDIAN Russell Howard will perform two shows in one day at the Grand Opera House, York, on his Live 2023 UK Tour.

As we reel from one global crisis to the next, the TV host of Russell Howard’s Good News and The Russell Howard Hour will put the world to rights in his observant, questioning way at 3pm and 7.30pm on Saturday, May 23.

Bath-born Howard, 42, who made appearances on the now-departed Mock The Week, cites Lee Evans, Richard Pryor and Frank Skinner as comic influences.
