Ostensibly, with his middle-of-the-road material and a giggling studio audience, there's little to differentiate the Bristolian comic's show from many others that have come before. What is different about Howard, however, is his willingness to share the stage with comics of all stripes. As the second series kicks off, up-and-comer Darren Harriott talks being mistaken for a terrorist, while Jimmy Carr brings his trademark one-liners.
