In Russell Howard & Mum: USA Road Trip, the funny, warm and engaging relationship between comedy superstar RUSSELL HOWARD and his “twinkly eyed smasher of a mum” NINETTE HOWARD is put under the microscope as they take an eye-opening trip around the USA. During their trip, they find themselves in truly ridiculous situations, proving to be an unlikely but hilarious comic duo throughout.

Spending hours on the road together in a minivan, RUSSELL and NINETTE meet an array of weird and wonderful characters and discover the eccentricities of the Land of the Free. We see the pair check out the legal and recreational use of cannabis in Portland; hang out with Guns N’ Roses drummer STEVEN ADLER and Kiss’ PAUL STANLEY at LA’s world Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp; don make-up and dresses for beauty queen training in Las Vegas; say hello to life on the range in Oregon by mastering the rope, cattle drive and a good old-fashioned hoedown; and culminates on the 4th of July with the oldest travelling side show in the country.

The first two series reached 3.7M individuals, with the first series being the highest rated new commission on the channel the year it launched.
