Win Russell Howard's Good News: Best of Series 2 on DVD with The Fan Carpet
September 26 2012
To celebrate the DVD release of Russell Howard's Good News Best of Series 2, The Fan Carpet have two copies of the DVD up for grabs!
Series two of Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Three’s most successful entertainment series is to be released on DVD on Monday 24th September 2012 by 4DVD. Since the show debuted in 2009 cumulative ratings have grown from 1.7 million to over 5 million a week, including BBC iPlayer on which Russell Howard’s Good News is regularly one of the most watched shows across all BBC channels. This feature length collection brings together the best bits of the series with previously unseen extras. RUSSELL HOWARD puts his spin on the big and bizarre news stories that have got the media in a frenzy, as well as the more weird and wonderful tales that may have passed under the radar. A brand news series of Russell Howard’s Good News also returns to BBC Three on 27th September at 9pm.
RUSSELL’s forensic trawl through news provides a unique and entertaining combination of stand-up, clips and sketches for the comic to apply his own uniquely upbeat angle to, and the new DVD will give Good News fans the chance to revisit all the funniest moments from the critically acclaimed second series. RUSSELL brought us a light-hearted look at the run-up to the general election and gave his pithy take on the TV debate between Cameron, Clegg and Brown, turning ‘Long Legged Cleggy Weggy’ into a national talking point (with over thirty thousand likes on Facebook). He also hit on some of the quirkier items on the news agenda; who could forget the grim-reaper cat with a talent for predicting death at the US care-home where he presided? In addition to footage from the show, the DVD extras include previously unseen sketches and a brand new ‘mystery guest’.
Russell has previously released three best-selling stand-up DVDs; Right Here, Right Now (2011), Russell Howard Live - Dingledodies (2009) and Russell Howard Live (2008). They have sold over half a million copies with each title hitting the top 5 DVD comedy chart during their year of release. In 2011 RUSSELL embarked on the sell-out, nationwide, triple-extended arena tour, Right Here, Right Now, which saw him perform to over 240,000 fans across the country including three sold-out dates at London’s O2 arena. A DVD featuring the first series of Russell Howard’s Good News was released in autumn 2010 by 4DVD.
RUSSELL has over two million fans on Facebook and is the third most searched for comedian on Google with around 165,000 searched a month (Chortle). Russell Howard’s Good News regularly trends globally on twitter after each episode. After wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogan #pugsnotdrugs RUSSELL made his fashion choice the most discussed topic in the world. This year RUSSELL has been nominated for ‘Celebrity Personality Of The Year’ at the National Reality TV Awards, and Russell Howard’s Good News has been shortlisted for ‘Best Entertainment Show’ in the TV Choice Awards 2012.
