Almost, but not quite there

6/10

Russell Howard is a new comedic face to me. His show is like a modern day version of the Clive James Show but with much less drollery and, possibly, not quite so interesting guests.

I keep watching even though there's something not quite a hit about this show. Russell picks up well on contemporary culture but the frequent and blatant references to bodily parts and functions can tend to wear after a while.

The humour is boyish-smutty which Russell carries off well given his looks. There is some wit in there but its generally overwhelmed.

The final segment of the show is always a 'feel good' story from the press which, again, can be hit or miss. Given Russell's persona I'll never be sure whether the segment is there to help tone down the previous material.

Worth giving a try if you don't recoil from brash, younger comedians.

Russell Howard's Good News

Author: darshan chudasama from United Kingdom

Russells show is not that good, its pretty cheap humor of clips repeated over and over again to get a laugh out of the childish audience members

his impressions are terrible because there always the same

the only good thing about the show is the clips but only seeing them once on the show , he tends to repeat the clips he has used once over and over again to fill in the time limit of the show

the truth is its a rip off of tosh.0 , every thing about the two shows are the same, but tosh has a funnier show because his show has a much broad variety of clips

russells show is limited to allot of things like the news aspect because there is never enough clips to show about news he uses top clips from the net

the show can be better if it was presented by a better host because he was terrible on mock the week just like anything else
