Russell Howard's Good News: Russell Howard
BBC Three's most successful entertainment series, Russell Howard’s Good News, returns for a seventh series this autumn.
This series Russell will once again be offering up an energetic look at global goings-on and finding his own uniquely upbeat angle on the news each week, from over 60 international news channels, 140 newspapers from around the world and over a thousand news clips. He and his crack-team will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of the weird and wonderful stories that have been dominating the media in the past seven days. As always, Russell will be joined by a mystery guest who has featured in the news that week; invite a member of the audience to ask him a question on the People’s Podium and will close the show with a feel-good tale of kindness, courage and hope to restore our faith in the good the world has to offer.

**Please note: All tickets for these shows have now been allocated.**
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).
