Russell Howard is one of the UK’s most successful comedians, performing his live shows to over one million people. His latest and biggest arena tour Wonderbox included a four night sell-out run at the Royal Albert Hall, sold out at the O2 and played to audiences across the USA and Australia. Russell is now preparing his 2017 Round the World tour, which will have performances spanning 11 countries across 3 continents, with 10 shows at the Royal Albert Hall.
Russell is the writer and star of BBC Three’s most popular entertainment show Russell Howard’s Good News. Its success led to a new home on BBC Two for its ninth and tenth series.
Russell has hosted two series of Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central on Comedy Central, and will be fronting a travelogue for the channel following his travels around the USA with his mum. Russell also starred in his first scripted comedy for BBC2’s A Gert Lush Christmas in 2015, which he co-wrote with Steve Williams.
Russell has released four bestselling live stand-up DVDs: Russell Howard Live (2008), Russell Howard Live: Dingledodies (2009) and Right Here, Right Now (2011), and Russell Howard: Wonderbox (2014).
“Energetic, uncynical and, most importantly, very funny.”
“Probably the best of a new generation of comics. His mind is as sharp as a witch’s nose and gagas flow from him with the ease and majesty of the River Nile”
“…a stand-up natural”
“He knows how to cheer up a working week. Russ is topical comedy gold” (Russell Howard’s Good News)
