Ruby Wax postpones Norwich shows due to a horse-riding accident


Comedian Ruby Wax had to postpone her upcoming tour due to having had a horse-riding accident on holiday that left her with “severe injuries”.

Ruby planned to start her new How To Be Human tour at the Playhouse from 3 to 6 of September. However, it will now be delayed until she recovers.

Besides her How To Be Human tour, she also canceled her Edinburgh Fringe shows in earlier September and tweeted her thanks to fans for their kind thoughts and messages and said that she was using mindfulness to help her body deal with the pain.

Ruby was born in Illinois, the United States and began her career in the sitcom named Girls on Top and as a comedy interviewer on shows like Ruby Wax Meets and The Full Wax. In  addition, she was the script editor for sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, too.

She now lives in the United Kingdom and she was made an OBE for her services to mental health – a hot topic that features heavily in her material in 2015.

Ruby’s new show How To Be Human, which was based on her bestselling book, answers questions about evolution, emotions, thoughts, the body, relationships, addictions, sex, kids, compassion, and the future.

Ruby’s management on the Norwich Playhouse website shows a statement: “Chambers Touring announces with great regret the postponement of Ruby Wax show: How To Be Human at Norwich Playhouse from 3 to 6 of September.

“Having a horse-riding accident on holiday, Ruby Wax has suffered severe injuries to her back.

“While we hoped that Ruby would have recovered in time for her shows, we have difficultly decided to delay the start of her tour to allow her to get back to full health.

“Ruby is very sorry to delay these shows and she always enjoys playing Norwich Playhouse as well as had been looking forward to starting her autumn tour there.

“We are trying to reschedule the shows. Ticket holders will be contacted in due course.”
