I started watching Russell Howard's Good News at the start of Series 3 and I saw there was a Best of Series 1 DVD, so I bought it and it had me in stitches after I saw the whole DVD. I hope this show alongside this DVD will stay on BBC Three for a very long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best laughs you will get! 10 Dec 2011
It is basically an extended episode of one of his shows but looks back on the very best clips. Such a good laugh.

Without a doubt Russell Howard is the funniest person on television (in my humble opinion) but what is NOT AT ALL funny is the PRICE of the DVD especially in light of what it contains. Given that Howard's comedy as a series works out as several hours of entertainment I was disgusted to learn that the DVD that I purchased (both in the case of 'The Best of Series 1'' and ''The Best of Series 2'' amounted on each disc to little more than ONE HOUR of footage. I am very unhappy about this and if Russell is looking in on this review he might want to have a chat with whoever edits these things because the price that I paid for it was disappointingly higher than the entertainment value that it presented! Come on, for this sort of money we ought to have at least THREE HOURS worth of Russell!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Price 21 Oct 2013

I'd been looking around for this DVD for a while to get for a Christmas present for a friend and this is definitely the best price that I've come across so far.

If you're a fan of Russell Howard then you definitely should buy this to enjoy classic Good News episodes, along with bonus content like the unaired pilot episode and cut-scenes that didn't make the show. And if you've got no idea if you like Russell Howard or not then this is a good DVD to get to find out - you get a good sample of the series and for a low price.
