Each week, multi-award winning comedian, RUSSELL HOWARD offers up an energetic look at global goings-on and finds his own uniquely upbeat angle on the news, from over 60 international news channels, 140 newspapers from around the world and over a thousand new clips. He and his crack team will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of the weird and wonderful stories that have been dominating the media in the past seven days.

As well as his trademark mix of topical stand-up and sketches, not to mention the inspirational and thought-provoking story to close the show on a feel-good note, Russell also chats to a high-profile person involved in the news that week.

Russell Howard’s Good News successfully moved over to BBC Two after eight hugely popular series on BBC Three. A huge presence online, RUSSELL has over three million fans on Facebook and a million followers on Twitter.
