Russell Howard burst onto the comedy scene in 2004 when he was commissioned to write and perform in the BBC Radio series, The Milk Run. He had already built up a reputation as a likeable comedian on the circuit, with an easy laid-back style. After the success of The Milk Run, which he co-presented with Jon Richardson, he took over the Sunday morning Russell Brand slot on BBC 6. It was renamed the Russell Howard Show, and since then he has appeared regularly on BBC2’s Mock the Week, and Radio 4’s Banter.

Although TV and radio gave him his big break Russell still prefers the immediacy of a live audience, so he tours regularly. His chatty style endears him to his fans, which is why Russell Howard tickets always sell out. He has created a relationship with his audience, who are essential to his act. “I need people out there to feed on,” he says.

His stage work has made him one of the country’s most exciting talents, and in 2005 his sell-out show, Wandering, at the Edinburgh Fringe won him a 10 minute slot on the Paramount Comedy show, Edinburgh and Beyond. More importantly, it won him the prestigious IF Comedy Award (formerly the Perrier Award).

Other gigs followed on the success of this work – Adventures (2007/8), Dingledodies (2008/9) and Big Rooms and Belly Laughs (2009). Thousands of Russell Howard tickets have been sold to these shows.

The comedian has recorded two 2 DVDs – Russell Howard Live and Russell Howard Live-Dingledodies. The sales of these have topped 300,000 – a fantastic achievement for a stand-up comic.

Russell’s activities aren’t confined to the stage; he took part in a gruelling challenge for the 2010 Sport Relief Campaign when he joined a team of comedy celebs recruited by David Walliams to cycle from John O’ Groats to Land’s End. This was just one of many charity events he has appeared at since his rise to fame.
