Russell Howard

The Opportunity

Russell Howard’s Travel Show, is the latest programme exclusive to Comedy Central UK, to be fronted by the wildly popular comedian

The Content

Russell Howard is back on Comedy Central and this time we will see him as we never have before : set loose from the stage and studio, hitting the roads of the US. From exploring the highways of Texas, to the streets of Baltimore and the high rises of New York, Russell will be seeking out the weird and wonderful wherever he visits : UFO spotting, learning hip-hop – you name it.

There’s just one twist: his mum is coming. Finally, fans who have heard Russell make so many jokes about his mum will see her for the first time – hilariously wide-eyed with innocent excitement at her dream trip to the US, whilst Russell larks around. This is not just a comedy show, not just a road trip, it’s also a witty and sharp story of  the current state of the US, through the places and characters you would least expect.
