The Russell Howard Hour

The Russell Howard Hour

Series 2 - Episode 1

Review

A second run of the matey comedian’s weekly show, offering his funny take on the week’s global current affairs – which at the moment means finding new ways to do comic incredulity – alongside guest performances from musicians and other stand-ups, and a sit-down interview. Last time out, Howard’s interlocutors were an eclectic mix: political writer Naomi Klein one week, footballer Juan Mata the next.

This time round the show will retain Playground Politics, the segment where kids give their views on the issues of the day, and introduce a new bit called Live Forever where Howard and a comedian chum try out a health fad.

Summary

The return of the topical comedy and entertainment show in which the host picks through the biggest UK and international stories, and is joined by celebrity guests.
