Comedy: Russell Kane at The Albert Halls for one night only

3 mins read

Following the success of his sold-out spring tour, Russell Kane is back with his new, highly anticipated show ‘Right Man, Wrong Age.’

The 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Award winner’s show promises to be a highly relatable comedic exploit of the question: Are we ever really the “right” age?

Are you a 30 year-old trapped inside the body of a 19 year-old? 40, but failing at faking 25? 80 with the heart of three oxen?

These and everything in between will be explored as Kane takes the audience through his interpretation of the timeless concept of ‘normalcy’, with an occasional  flatulence joke added in.

Kane, who made history by winning both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Barry Award in one year, relates the bittersweet story of how the idea for his newest show appeared.

He said: “I was in the middle of spray-tanning myself upstairs in these tiny pants when the doorbell went. I went downstairs in my dressing gown and this window cleaner was touting for work. He leaned in and said, ‘I’m really sorry to disturb you: is your mum or dad in at all?’

“Initially you might have thought this was a compliment, but it’s really not. So I thought: ‘clothes in the bin’. And at that moment, there was ‘Right Man, Wrong Age'”.

Kane is also a  multi-award winning presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter – you might know him best as the host of three series of BBC3‘s Live At The Electric, regular appearances on BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, BBC3’s ‘Unzipped’, ITV2’s ‘Celebrity Juice’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now!’

Looking to continually stretch his creativity and comfort zone, Kane is soon to be featured in BBC’s new series, ‘Stupid Man, Smart Phone’, for which he jetted off to various inhospitable parts of the world (the Arctic Circle and North Africa, to name a few) to see if he could survive bearing only a fully-charged mobile device with a Wi-Fi connection.

Constantly in search of ridiculous yet compelling ideas, Kane promises a memorable experience and catchy quotes to be found in this brand new show. Already highly acclaimed by The Times and The Guardian, this gig promises to pack a punch so get ready to laugh at yourself and poke fun at others on Saturday, October 22 at the Albert Halls. Doors open 7:30 pm, 14+ admission, tickets are £19.00 (£17.00 conc.).

Extra space was recently provided by the venue so the show is no longer sold out. Be quick about it!
