Russell Howard: Wandering

Russell Howard
Pleasance Upstairs

As the Guardian has apparently already said, Russel Howard is not the person to look for if you want cutting edge political comedy. But Howard himself says in his act that that's not his goal. His goal is to tell you about the amusing things he's seen during the day, and hopefully they'll make you giggle a little as you drift off to sleep. His comedy is gentle and well-constructed, and Howard has an unerringly natural performance persona. He relies on charm and wit, rather than crude jokes (although there are a few in here, don't get me wrong). His shows are selling out quickly, so best to book a ticket well in advance.
