One of the UK's most successful live stand-up comedians, with over 3.4 million Facebook fans and 1.3 million Twitter followers, Russell Howard won "Best Compere" at the 2006 Chortle Awards and was nominated for an if.comedy award for his 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, Wandering.

Russell’s 2017 tour, Round the World, was his biggest tour to date with performances spanning 11 countries across 3 continents. With 10 consecutive nights at the Royal Albert Hall, his tour breaks the venue’s record previously held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow with 8 shows in a row. The success of this tour led to its release as a Netflix Special entitled Recalibrate.

Following his world tour, Russell hosted a new comedy entertainment programme for Sky 1, The Russell Howard Hour.

Over the period from 2009 to 2015, Russell wrote and starred in 96 episodes of Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Three’s best-performing entertainment show. Its success led to a new home on BBC Two for its ninth and tenth seasons, where it averaged over 3 million viewers per episode.

Multiple segments of the show have gone viral, amassing over 32 million views.

Russell has released four best-selling live stand-up DVDs: Russell Howard Live (2008), Russell Howard Live: Dingledoddies (2009), Right Here, Right Now (2011) and Russell Howard: Wonderbox (2014).

Russell's tireless energy, unabashed love of humanity and uniquely positive approach to stand up has made him one of the UK's favourite and most successful comedians.


I would like to say thank you to Russell Howard, for a brilliant show… it was non stop laughing from the moment he got on stage until he had finished. An amazing night – well done.

O2 Arena.

This guy is so funny. He has a really nice way of telling his jokes that has you gripped and then falling about laughing.
