Written and presented by the hugely popular comedian RUSSELL HOWARD, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central is filmed in Camden’s iconic Electric Ballroom. In each episode, RUSSELL performs exclusive new material, answers (sometimes) weird and (usually) wonderful audience questions, and introduces his handpicked roster of the best UK and international stand up acts. The first series, which premiered in 2015 on Comedy Central in the UK, achieved viewing figures 159% above the slot average for the channel. It debuted Catastrophe star ROB DELANEY’s stand up to a British TV audience and featured a host of the hottest comedic names of last year including DOC BROWN, ROISIN CONATY, NICK HELM, NISH KUMAR, SARA PASCOE, and KATHERINE RYAN.
In the second series, which premiered in 2016, Russell Howard welcomed fellow comedians JAMES ACASTER (QI), JIMMY CARR (8 Out of 10 Cats), BRIDGET CHRISTIE (Have I Got News For You), ED GAMBLE (Mock the Week), JOSIE LONG (The Alternative Comedy Experience), JOE LYCETT (Never Mind the Buzzcocks), CHRIS RAMSEY (Celebrity Juice), ISY SUTTIE (Peep Show), TOMMY TIERNAN (Father Ted) and SEANN WALSH (Live at the Apollo). A third series has already been ordered and is set to air in 2017.
