On stage, the show from Russell Respite’s 2019 international tour is his biggest yet, spanning more than 24 countries on five continents. This follows her 2017 international tour, Round the World, which performed at the Royal Albert Hall ten nights in a row, breaking the venue record previously held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow of eight shows in a row. The success of this tour led to its release as a Netflix special titled Recalibrate.
Andrew Bird, Daisy Earl and Jarred Christmas will be supporting Russell that night.
Andrew has been supporting Rhod Gilbert, Rob Brydon and Michael McIntyre, including playing at Wembley and the O2 on his tour of the arenas.
Daisy is one of the rising stars of the comedy world, having won Best New Comedian at the Scottish Variety Awards and Scottish Comedian of the Year in the same year. She then followed that up with a sold-out show at the Adelaide Fringe, before returning to the UK and winning the Best Newcomer award at the Chortle Awards.
Born in New Zealand, Jarred has appeared on television as a performer and panelist on shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Mock the Week by BBC Two, Good News by Russell Howard from BBC Three and 8 Out of 10 Cats. by Channel 4.
There will be a morning and a late show for this event. The doors for the morning show are at 4 p.m. with an hour of stage at 5 p.m. and the doors for the subsequent show at 7:30 p.m. with an hour of show at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are available here.
Gary Delanay also performs at Falmouth in November, whose Gary in Punderland show is at Poly on Saturday August 7th.
One of the nation’s most sought-after joke-makers and longtime Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo special guest, Gary presents an all-new show with hit after hit from one-liners.
The Poly currently at capacity for remote corporate offices has therefore closed this event for Internet sales. In the event that by August social distancing measures are no longer necessary, this restriction will be lifted and the remaining tickets can be reserved as usual.
