    General public are usually idiots and like shit things.

    I gave that show one chance but the humour seemed to be aimed for 10 year olds mainly.

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    He is funny, although I've never seen his show. It's probably terrible though I expect.

    He's pretty inoffensive.. Infinitely better then Jack Whitehall anyway.

    He is funny but there's just nothing really original or distinctive about his routines.

    Is Russell Howard some kind of hideous experiment to combine Frankie Howard and Russell Brand?

    I used to like Russell Howard on 6 music probably because john Richardson looking back. I went to see him live but his show like any comedian without any decent material consisted of saying 'fuck' and 'fucking' every other word.

    I think he's funny on Mock the Week but that new show is terrible. I watched ten minutes of it and had to turn it off.

    I think he is funny, on mock the week, and once when i went to see jimmy carr live and at the end carr dragged howard on at the end and made him do a ten minute set and he got as many laughs as carr... but i do think his show is hit and miss, but not terrible.

    Haven't seen his show, but I think he's great on Mock the Week and his stand up DVD is the finest I've seen in the last two years, no contest.

    I think he once mentioned his horrific amount of blinking was because he has ADHD. I'm not a doctor though so I dunno.

    I like how on Mock the Week you can tell when he's got a joke cos he starts squinting and blinking at the camera then he says something about wanking.

    Nah, he's funny enough. Not mega-amazing-best-ever funny and a little righteous but still funny.

    ...seems more accurate from what I've seen of him.

    That's his new show, I believe. Mine was an excerpt from Mock The Week.

    He's great on mock the week. I've seen one episode and it was alright, but he used a joke he'd used on Mock the Week.

    Mock the week works because no one comic gets long enough to run out of funny things to say.

    The new show is pretty hit and miss and could do with being just 10 minutes of standup about the news rather than all this chop and change stuff with extraneous crap.

    Yep I saw that, the Berlusconi one.

    Frankie Boyle endlessly repeats gags but it's alright for him to do it.

    Russell Howard is good for his age it normally takes time for comics to bed in and get comfortable with the delivery. Not the funniest but certainly not shit.

    Oh.

    That floppy haired blonde twit. I don't like him. I've only ever seen his face on panel shows that I've immediately turned off, but I just know I'd hate him.

    I'm amazed that anybody is saying he's good on Mock the Week. He is without doubt the worst member of the panel. He always comes across as such a try-hard. He's the kind of person who thinks that simply listing things from a certain era is enough to warrant a laugh. 'Do you remember Rubix Cubes? Whooooo boy!!', Fuck off.
