Russell tells his 'embarrassing' sleep story

This week Russell tackles the silent killer known as embarrassment.

Featuring: Russell Howard.

Rukmini Callimachi interview

Russell sits down with Romanian-American journalist Rukmini Callimachi to talk about Isis.

Featuring: Russell Howard & Rukmini Callimachi.


Who better to satirically scythe through the US midterms and Brexit than Russell Howard? Well, thousands of people, actually - but in their absence, expect another truckload of undercooked topical gags and the odd celebrity guest in this returning series, which is recorded close to broadcast.

Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 8th November 2018
