The tour sees the comedian explore ageing and fatherhood

Award-winning comedian Russell Kane is heading to Gravesend this autumn following a sold-out spring tour.

The Enfield-born comic’s Right Man, Wrong Age show sees him perform material about “growing up, growing down, and why farts will always be funny”.

He chronicles his journey through fatherhood so far, and explores the different approaches he and his wife have towards parenting.

Kane, who married fan Lindsey Cole in 2013 after meeting her at a gig in Manchester, became a dad last year.

His tour has been a hit with the critics, garnering a four-star review from The Times, and earning plaudits from The Guardian and other newspapers.

The comic is best known as the host of three series of BBC3’s Live At The Electric, as well as for 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!

He began his career in 2004, when he won the Laughing Horse New Act of The Year, following up with second place in stand-up contest So You Think You’re Funny in 2005.

The same year, he appeared with fellow comedians Ray Peacock, Russell Howard and Reginald D Hunter on the national Paramount Edinburgh and Beyond tour.

He was nominated four times for prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards before winning Best Show in 2010.

The comic went on to make history as the first comedian to win both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Barry Award in one year.

His debut novel, The Humorist, was published by Simon and Schuster in April 2012, and he has also written a play, Fakespeare, which has been a sell-out success.

The comedian has released two DVDs: Smokescreens and Castles, and Russell Kane Live, and is the new host of new BBC3 series Stupid Man, Smart Phone, which is available on BBC iPlayer.

The Right Man, Wrong Age tour comes to The Woodville Theatre on Sunday, November 27.

Tickets are available from 08442 439 480 and
