The nine-part series, Russell Howard’s Home Time, will air twice a week and will see Howard chat to famous and interesting faces about current world events.
Viewers can expect intimate live performances, laugh out loud stories and uplifting updates from those helping on the frontline during these strange times.
Russell Howard commented: “Like you, I’m stuck at home going slowly mad. So, I’m doing a new show where I’ll be trying to spread some joy in these strange times, chatting to some famous faces and unsung heroes. But crucially not touching ANY of them.”
