A great news comedy show
26 October 2014 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Russell looks at stories in the news, with focus on the UK, Europe, and rest of the world.

The comedy is 'spot-on' with well timed skits, jokes, and commentary. Jokes frequently go full-circle and you'll see them well placed multiple times throughout the show.

For US fans this show is akin to The Daily Show or Colbert Report, just without a news desk; and at times is funnier, but the formula is similar: Current news, puns about it, skits, and finally a guest at the end.

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Thank you Russell Howard.
