About

Russell Howard is one of the UK’s most successful comedians. His 2011 sell-out arena tour Right Here, Right Now played to more than 300,000 fans including three sold out dates at the 15,000 seater O2 Arena. He returned to the stage in 2014 with his arena tour, Wonderbox, including four shows at the Royal Albert Hall and a string of international dates.

Russell is the writer and star of BBC Three’s most successful entertainment show Russell Howard’s Good News. Since its debut in 2009 cumulative ratings have grown from 1.7 million a week to a peak of over 3.9 million. The success of the show saw Series 6 move to the new prime-time slot of 9pm where ratings rose to a peak of over 5 million weekly viewers across TV and iPlayer. Good News is regularly the number one show on iPlayer across all BBC channels. The 9th series will begin at the end of 2014, after a transfer to BBC Two.

Russell has released three bestselling live stand-up DVDs: Russell Howard Live (2008), Russell Howard Live: Dingledodies (2009) and Right Here, Right Now (2011). He has now sold over 600,000 DVDs and has been in the top 5 DVD comedy chart across all his stand-up titles. The Wonderbox DVD will be released in Autumn 2014.
