I have been a fan of TV's 'Russell Howard's Good News' from the start, and this excellent DVD compiles some of the best bits of the first series, and it's a really good compilation.

If you aren't familiar with the format, comedian Russell Howard takes a humorous look at the stories that have been featured in the newspapers over the past week, as well as the more quirky, less-reported incidents that might only be on YouTube for example, sometimes Russell invites the people involved to appear on the show. Essentially, the show is a platform for this great young talent to make often hilarious and sarcastic comments, but the scope of news includes everything from society, sports, celebrity, crime and politics.

This is such a quirky, 'feel-good' show and this DVD never fails to make me smile, often at his expressions and mannerisms as much as the news stories. Russell is so likeable and down-to-earth and if you like what you see here, I can only urge you to watch his stand-up. This DVD boasts a generous serving of special features, including the unaired pilot and some unseen bits and pieces.

It is basically an extended episode of one of his shows but looks back on the very best clips. Such a good laugh.

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.

From the very best bits of the first series of Russell Howard's Good News. This is like watching an extended edition of the show along with a few extras on the disc too.
If you've seen Russell Howard on BBC3, you know he is capable of giving you laugh after laugh.
You won't be disappointed with this DVD.
Enjoy!

Bought as a Christmas present, I laughed my head off at his simple approaches to comedy against the news. His expressions and mannerisms complete whatever gimic he's going for.

Be warned though, sexual innuendo abound and a few colourful words splashed here and there.

Brilliant!!! I couldn`t stop laughing! The jokes were as funny as hell and if you like "Mock the Week", watch this! If you don`t, this is so much better anyway!!!

My son is a great fan of Russell Howard. His jokes are aimed at the teenage young man who finds bad taste jokes funny so may not be everyones cup of tea.
