Sky has announced that Russell Howard will return for a third and fourth series of his comedy show The Russell Howard Hour.
The topical entertainment show sees Howard offer his unique and funny perspective on news and current affairs, heckling the headlines and hosting a celebrity guest each week.
Filmed in front of a studio audience, the comedian also talks to children about global politics, champions the nation’s generosity and addresses his fear of mortality and tries various life prolonging activities.
“I absolutely love doing this show,” commented Russell Howard. “It’s such a ridiculous privilege that I get to write jokes as the world spins out of control.”
Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts added that “Russell has established himself as one of the foremost satirical voices on TV and online.
“We are happy as hell that he has a home on Sky One where he can bring our audiences his unique and hilarious take on our messed-up world.”
The Russell Howard Hour’s third series will go into production later this year.
