One of the hottest properties in the comedy world, Russell is known to millions as a panelist on BBC2's Mock The Week and BBC3's Russell Howard's Good News as well as from regular appearances on Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Would I Lie To You? (BBC1), Live At The Apollo and as the new host of Comedy Central’s Edinburgh and Beyond.
But it is on stage where Russell really storms it. Three sold out solo tours in three years cemented Russell’s reputation as one of the best live acts in the country with his twice extended ‘Dingledodies’ tour playing to over 125,000 people alone.
Russell has two bestselling DVDs to his name: 2008's Russell Howard Live and 2009's Russell Howard Live - Dingledodies, both of which were the fifth highest selling stand up titles of their respective years and his latest DVD release 'Right Here, Right Now' is racing up the charts.
His 2009 tour ‘Big Rooms & Belly Laughs’ saw Russell play 10 Arena shows and his latest 2011 Right Here Right Now tour has been his greatest yet.
In addition to being a regular on Mock The Week (which has seen viewing figures of over 5 million per week), Russell has appeared on Live At The Apollo alongside some of the biggest names in comedy; and cycled from John O'Groats to Lands End alongside David Walliams, Jimmy Carr, Fearne Cotton, Davina Mccall, Miranda Hart and Patrick Kielty for BBC Sport Relief.
