Russell is also writer and star of two series of his own BBC Three show, Russell Howard’s Good News. The hit show’s debut run was the most requested BBC Three programme on iPlayer last year, and the channel’s most successful studio-based entertainment show ever, drawing in 2.5 million viewers a week.
He also has two bestselling DVDs to his name, 2008’s Russell Howard Live and 2009’s Russell Howard Live - Dingledodies, both of which were the fifth highest selling stand up titles of their respective years.
In addition to being a regular on Mock The Week (BBC Two's highest rating comedy show, which has seen viewing figures of over 5 million per week), Russell has twice appeared on Live At The Apollo (BBC ONE) alongside some of the biggest names in comedy; and cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End alongside David Walliams, Jimmy Carr, Fearne Cotton, Davina McCall, Miranda Hart and Patrick Kielty for BBC Sport Relief.
Russell is currently in production with a third series of Russell Howard’s Good News, which transmits this autumn, whilst his arena tour 'Right Here, Right Now' begins in 2011.
‘As sparkling as a tree's-worth of Christmas lights. a robust antidote to the depressive, recessionary mood of the moment... Right now, he's flying’
‘The Mock the Week star has joined the big league’
‘Probably the best of a new generation of comics. His mind is as sharp as a witch’s nose and gags flow from him with the ease and Majesty of the river Nile’
