What has Russell Howard been doing recently?

Russell Howard has always been a popular draw, and as such is often invited to be a guest panelist on almost all of the UK’s top comedy shows.

From 2009 to 2015 he was given his own show, named ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’, where he’d present the latest news stories in the UK and around the world, including the obscure oddball stories, and put his usual comedic twist to make them highly entertaining for his audience.

While that ended in 2015, he was given another version of the show in 2017 called ‘The Russell Howard Hour’, which again has been immensely popular within the nation.

What makes the show so appealing is the guests he has appearing on them. As Russell is a big draw, he's able to get some rather big names to come on his show, such as Keanu Reeves, Ed Sheeran, and (very interestingly) Greta Thunberg.

In October 2023, Russell launched his highly anticipated podcast, Wonderbox, as stated on his website, it serves as "a place where you keep little reminders of what makes life worth living."

Each week, Russell engages in candid conversations with special guests, delving into what they would keep in their Wonderbox. Together, they share their most memorable and funniest life moments.

The series kicked off with an incredible lineup of guests, including Sam Ryder, Munya Chawawa, John Oliver, Jimmy Carr, Jack Whitehall, Greg Davies, Jen Brister, Guz Khan, Jordan Gray, and Rachel Parris.

When and where is Russell Howard’s tour happening?

Howard announced his latest tour back in October 2022, and it included 46 shows in 22 different venues and cities, running from 19th March - 17th June 2023.

What are the critics saying about the tour?

The critics have always been kind to Howard regarding his live shows, and that's because he always puts on a good show.

‘The Times’ has called him a megastar in the past, while the ‘Sunday Times’ have labelled him as 'One of the world’s top comedians'.

The List recently reviewed Russell Howard's Theatre Royal show in Glasgow, which took place in July 2023. The review gave the show a solid 4 out of 5 stars and described it as a 'gag-packed show that is outspoken and clear-sighted.'

According to comedy critic Jay Richardson, witnessing Russell's comedic genius in a smaller venue made his perspectives feel more organic. Richardson also noted that despite being comfortably in middle age, Russell's boyish brilliance remains undimmed, as he continues to embrace his arrested development with remarkable skill.
