Russell has been busy cementing his place as one of the hottest properties in comedy with his BBC6 Music show every Sunday, loads of Mock The Week and Never Mind The Buzzcocks on BBC2, Would I Lie To You? and Live At The Apollo on BBC1, Law of the Playground on Channel 4 and Tough Gig, The Brits and The British Comedy Awards on ITV! But it is on stage where Russell really storms it. A complete sell out at Edinburgh 2004-2006, Russell sold every ticket of his 2007 run before the Festival had even started and couldn't add extra dates fast enough. His first nationwide solo tour of if.comedy and Barry Award nominated show 'Wandering' was a complete sell out success. This DVD is of his second tour 'Adventures' which was again sold out, including selling all tickets in one day for London's Bloomsbury Theatre where it was recorded.
Current tour information
An extra date has been added to his current tour, Dingledodies, at Wembley Arena (no less) on Thursday 4 December.

Russell is an elastic-faced, multi-voiced whirlwind of energy, jokes, warmth and pathos. He has an ability to bring in a crowd and carry them along with him. As others have noted, he is quite fast and jumps around an awful lot. This means you can lose the thread if you're only half concentrating. But the sheer wealth of material means that this is likely to be a DVD you return to many times over and are still discovering new jokes and things to laugh at on your third or forth watch.
Being a fellow Bristolian, I particularly enjoy his excellent Brizzle accent! He also has a face which lends itself well to comedic poses, particularly when he's portraying kids.
I rectified my mistake of not seeing Russell when I had the chance by going to see his new show at the CIA in Cardiff. It were lush!
Both Dingledodies and Russell Howard Live had me laughing from start to finish. He has a great energy and the jokes he told were brilliant. The extras also kept the smile on my face.
Speedy delivery, arrived 2 days after being ordered~
To my slight dismay I found it a little underwhelming.
His performance is the same manic, zany & energetic style that I had seen on TV, yet I feel he never quite got into his stride and the laughs seemed few & far between. Howard's stand-up is delivered in a relentlessly energetic fashion, running and leaping around the stage, his material infused with a sense of child-like wonder and a unique brand of anti-cynicism. Don't get me wrong - there are laughs to be had, but after watching the latest Jimmy Carr DVD where I was laughing from start to finish, this just seemed a bit lacking.
If Howard can be accused of anything, it's of being a fairly "safe" performer - rather than do anything especially new with stand-up, he simply attacks the job with all the enthusiasm he can muster, revelling in his role as an entertainer and doing a brilliant job at it. The odd bout of crowd-based improvisation aside, he stays in the same gear throughout the performance.
The DVD package itself is especially disappointing. The production is good, if not perfect - although the editing could've perhaps made some parts of the show a little slicker, it instead gives the impression of a live performance captured in its entirety, retaining a genuine feel. The running time is roughly 1 hour, even accounting for an extra Q&A segment recorded especially for the DVD, and the only extra is the aforementioned Q&A, which is disappointingly short.
As I said at the beginning, comedy is subjective, but me? I bought this DVD, watched it just once then sold it immediately right here on Amazon Marketplace. Draw your own conclusions from that.
