Recently, comedian and writer Russell Howard announced his first tour in three years. Called Wonderbox, it begins in Bournemouth and will be followed by arena-sized stops in Cardiff, Manchester, Aberdeen and many more before topping it all off with four, FOUR, nights in London's Royal Albert Hall from 14th to 17th April.

Due to unprecedented demand (yeah, like they weren't going to sell fast..), Howard has added a handful of new shows. The tour will now start in Bournemouth on 22nd February 2014 (23rd now sold out), another Cardiff show on 25th Feb plus new shows in March at the Leeds Arena (16th) and two new London shows either side of the Thames - Wembley Arena (27th) and the O2 Arena (29th).

Tickets for these shows are on sale now, priced from £27.50 upwards, including the London shows - top seats for those are £30.

NB: As well as that first Bournemouth show, the Brighton show on 24th March and two Royal Albert Hall shows on 16th and 17th April have all-but sold out - we'll let you know if any more are announced.

The name Russell Howard is becoming synonymous with panel game-shows and his own light-hearted and topical BBC series, "Russell Howard's Good News", which was voted the Best BBC3 Show by viewers during the station's recent 10th anniversary celebrations.

But it's his stand-up career that initially propelled him into the spotlight - his 2011 Right Here Right Now tour sold out in a matter of days with the whole thing having to be extended to satiate demand, a little like this one.
