Russell Howard is one of our funniest and most successful comedians. The quick-witted, cheeky and wryly observant comedian first became known when he was appearing as a regular on BBC2's Mock The Week. He has had huge success in writing and starring in his own BBC show, Russell Howard's Good News.
Russell Howard’s Good News is available around the world via a YouTube channel launched in 2014 – allowing fans to watch full episodes of the show (without piracy) in countries where the show wasn’t already broadcast – and has had over 11 million views and been watched in 180 countries (including North Korea and Vatican City).
As part of his Round The World tour in 2017, Russell played 10 consecutive nights at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, overtaking the record of 8 in a row jointly held by Frank Sinatra in the 70s and Barry Manilow in the 90s. Before this, the record for the most consecutive performances by a comedian was 6 nights, shared by legends Victoria Wood and Billy Connolly.
'Energetic, uncynical and, most importantly, very funny' (The Times).
