Statement from the Promoter:

Due to recent announcements by the New Zealand Government, Russell Howard’s “Respite” tour has been rescheduled. 

Sat 23 Jan 2021 - Auckland, Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre (previously Mon 27 Jul)

All existing tickets remain valid for the rescheduled show without the need for exchange.

Patrons unable to attend the new date can obtain a refund by submitting their request HERE prior to Thursday 25 June at 5pm.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.



Following the record-breaking success of his 2017 tour Round The World, Russell Howard returns with his biggest globe-spanning stand-up tour to date. 

Hot on the heels of his critically-acclaimed hit Sky One show The Russell Howard Hour, and his global smash Netflix special Recalibrate, Russell is back on stage where he belongs, making sense of a world that’s spinning out of control.

It’s time for Respite.


'It’s thrilling to see Howard with fire in his belly  ★★★★★' Metro

'World domination is looming… he has grown darker, angrier and more satirical on stage. His sets deal with everything from foreign policy to his fear of death, and he rages as much as he teases' The Sunday Times
