Calling all fans – Russell Kane to perform at Charter Hall, Colchester

PUBLISHED: 24 March 2022

Date issued: 24 March 2022

Colchester Events is thrilled to announce that comedian Russell Kane is to perform his new show ‘The Essex Variant’ at Colchester’s Charter Hall on Friday 16 September 2022.
Kane brings his gut-punch funny, searing, award-winning take on the two years we’ve just gone through. Hailed as The Guardian's Number 1 comedy performance to come out of 2020, this high-octane show promises belly laughs and observations to prove laughter really is the best medicine.
Russell Kane has two chart-topping, award-bagging podcasts: Man Baggage and BBC Radio 4’s Evil Genius and is a regular on Channel 4, BBC, and ITV. He’s also a writer, actor, and presenter.  He was the first ever comedian to bag the two most prestigious comedy awards on earth in the same year, for the same show: The Dave's Edinburgh Comedy Awards (formerly The Perrier), and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award, (formerly known as the Barry Award). He’s also a raving bighead that likes listing his achievements.
