Russell is seen as one of the best improv merchants in the business. He delivers his stories with a sense of wonder and joy; even his mischievous side is good-natured. Following the release of his Netflix special Lubricant, he became the sole comedian to have two of the top ten most-streamed specials across all platforms in the UK.


Biography

With over nine million followers across his social media platforms, Russell Howard is one of the UK’s most successful comedians. He wrote and starred in The Russell Howard Hour, which ran for six seasons, and previously, wrote and starred in ten seasons of Russell Howard’s Good News. His travelogue series, Russell Howard & Mum: Globetrotters, was the highest-rated new commission on Comedy Central when it launched and ran for two seasons.

On stage, Russell has an infectious enthusiasm for the world that’s impossible to resist. His international tour show, Respite, his biggest to date, spanned over twenty-four countries across five continents. This followed his international tour, Round the World, which saw Russell performing at the Royal Albert Hall on ten consecutive nights, breaking the venue’s record previously held by Frank Sinatra and Barry Manilow of eight shows in a row. The tour was then released as a Netflix Special entitled Recalibrate. He has released four bestselling live stand-up DVDs: Russell Howard Live, Russell Howard Live: Dingledoddies, Right Here, Right Now and Russell Howard: Wonderbox.

In his podcast Wonderbox, Russell chats to special guests about what they’d keep in their Wonderbox, recounting the most memorable and funniest moments of their lives. He describes the series as “an absolutely joyous celebration of the little things that make people tick.”
