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.

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!

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.

We'd seen Russell on mock the week etc and always found him funny, although we'd never watched this show in particular. Bought the dvd for xmas and found ourselves rolling around in tears (with laughter). We would highly reccommend this dvd to all comedy fans and particularly Russell Howard fans.

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.

I saw some Good News episodes on the television, and decided to buy this for a night's entertainment, Russell is a seriously talented comedian in my opinion, me and my girlfriend were laughing constantly through this, and I would recommend Russell Howard to anyone, and he is rapidly becoming one of my favourite comedians. He didn't use some material i'd seen from the series I thought he would, but that's perfectly fine as it was funny as it was. Over all....5*

If you love Russell Howard you will love this! and if your a fan of Harry Hill Tv Burp...you will love this as it is set in the same frame of taking the mick out of things but focused on news. :) as you can tell from the title...he never leaves you upset, and disapointed a very good buy...and can't wait for the next one to buy :D enjoy!!
