Russell Kane will be performing in Scilly on 6th September

One of the UK’s top stand-up comedians, Russell Kane, is to venture where few professional funny men have set foot before when he performs on the Isles of Scilly at the beginning of September. His date with Scilly has just been added to the hugely successful tour of his live show, Smallness.

He couldn’t have picked a better venue since our picture-perfect archipelago has a population of only 2,200. Good things come in small packages, and Scilly is definitely one.

Russell says: “The Isles of Scilly are tailor-made for my Smallness show which celebrates everything small. It all started with a tweet; I was followed by Visit Isles of Scilly on Twitter, tweeted that I’d always wanted to go there, and was invited to perform. It seemed like the perfect opportunity.”

A multi-talented writer and performer, Russell Kane has firmly established himself as one the best comics in the UK today. He was recently on our screens hosting the third series of Live at the Electric for BBC3, and co-hosted Staying In with Russell and Greg, also on BBC3. On Scilly, he will be supported by popular Cornish comedian, the Kernow King, who is looking forward to sharing the stage with the notoriously energetic comic.

Chris Gregory, Chairman of the Islands’ Partnership, says: “We’re thrilled to be hosting Russell on the Isles of Scilly – at our first major comedy event. We’re sure it will be popular with Scillonians and visitors alike. The comedy show is part of our Super September of events on Scilly, which also includes the annual Tresco and Bryher Food Festival and new September Walk Scilly Weekend.”

Russell Kane will be performing on the evening of Saturday, 6 September in the fantastic new performance theatre at the Five Islands School on St. Mary’s. Bar and food will be available.

Tickets are £17.50. To book your tickets, email events@visitislesofscilly.com or phone the Islands’ Partnership team on 01720 424036. Suitable for 16yrs and over.
