Backyard Bar, London

Contact venue for tickets


Russell Howard hosts a night of spectacular stand-up to raise funds for Help Refugees.

One of the best known names in British comedy and presenter of his own smash-hit TV shows, Russell Howard is your MC for the latest instalment of Choose Laughs, in aid of Help Refugees.

Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. It's a group of everyday people, taking joint action to improve the lives of refugees throughout the world. In less than three years, it has become the biggest facilitator of grassroots aid in Europe, with more than 80 projects across the continent and the Middle East.

In 2017, Russell completed his globetrotting, record-breaking Round The World tour, which included 10 nights at the Royal Albert Hall and a further 36 cities worldwide. The acclaimed Netflix special Recalibrate followed, as did his own Sky One show, The Russell Howard Hour, which featured a diverse list of guests - including Sir Richard Branson, Stephen Merchant, Ed Sheeran and Diane Abbott. Catch Russell on-stage at Backyard before he embarks on his biggest stand-up tour ever, Recalibrate, as he tries out new material alongside his favourite comedians currently on the circuit.

"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

Joining Russell is the hilarious Steve Hall (writer for The Russell Howard Hour and one third of Perrier-nominated sketch group, We Are Klang) and Kiri Pritchard-McLean (host of BBC Radio Four's Newsjack, co-host of the All Killa no Filla podcast and a quadruple Chortle Award winner). More acts are to be announced.

Line-up is subject to change.
