Russell Howard

Known to millions as a panelist on BBC Two's Mock The Week, Russell has been a regular guest on Never Mind the Buzzcock's (BBC Two) and Would I Lie To You? (BBC One) along with hosting Comedy Central's Edinburgh and Beyond and twice appearing on Live at the Apollo (BBC One). In 2009 Russell brought his unique take on the world to BBC Three with Russell Howard's Good News – the channel first topical comedy show.


But it is on stage where Russell really storms it. Three previous tours Wandering (2006/7), Adventures (2007/8) and Dingledodies (2008/9) have all completely sold out including three nights at the Hammersmith Apollo and a huge show at Wembley Arena. In 2009 Russell embarks on his Big Rooms and Belly Laughs Arena tour playing 10 of his largest gigs so far.


'A robust antidote to the depressive, recessionary mood of the moment … Right now, he's flying' The Telegraph


'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' Time Out
