The Event

Russell Kane brings his Smallness tour and its sideways look at British national identity to De Montfort Hall. The high-energy comic riffs on our typical reserve, suspicion and fierce tendency towards nostalgia with plenty of physicality and wordplay. The show delves into the comic disparity between the performer's sense of self and the aggrandisements of fame, before culminating with the tale of a calamitous holiday in Thailand.

Choose from the following options for tickets:

  • £12 for one person (31% off)

  • £20 for two people (43% off)

Reviews

Average rating:4 stars The List

Average rating:3 stars The Guardian

Smallness scored 4/5 from The List and 3/5 from The Guardian. Critics had a somewhat mixed appreciation of Kane's ruminations on the British state of mind, but were particularly keen to commend his personal stories. Special praise was given to the turns of phrase, asides, voices and overall energy that comprised Kane's distinctive delivery.

"A physical comedian whose mind works at an equally active rate of knots, his piranha-sharp wit can leave you folding in its wake. But when he hits his target, there are few British comics to touch him."

Brian Donaldson, The List, August 2013
