4 Full of youthful charm and vigourvarv2711 | 31/12/2008 | See all varv2711's reviews (10)Russell Howard is fairly new on the comedy circuit, having gained popular acclaim and praise from Mock the Week, where most buyers would have got the influence to buy the DVD. Having seen him on his new tour I can assure the viewing public that he is nothing short of brilliant. He has his finger on the pulse and reveals the pitfalls and shortcomings of modern life but what makes him extra special is his cheerful and optimistic attitude to his performance.Unlike his compatriot on Mock the Week, Frankie Boyle his material differs from show to show and his joyful countenance is contagious and cheers up those who see him live. Therefore for many reasons this is one of the best stand up DVDs that has been released this year. A definite buy.
