Instead, his new wife went back to work as a doctor on the COVID frontlines while he quarantined with his family — and from his childhood bedroom, began broadcasting a pandemic talk show for Sky called Russell Howard’s Home Time. When gigs began opening up again, Howard jumped at the chance to perform for live audiences, no matter where or how. You can see the results of his pandemic work in a new documentary, Until The Wheels Come Off, which accompanies his 2021 Netflix stand-up special, Lubricant. Howard spoke with me about his approach to comedy and to life, and how it may have changed 20 years after he first got onstage as a teenager.
I don’t know how he does it, but British comedian Russell Howard brings a sense of positivity and hope and optimism to his comedy, even now!

He manages to be silly and sentimental at the same time, so whenever he’s talking, I’m listening — well, if I’m not already laughing.

Russell Howard Stands Up To The World is exactly the show I needed to see right now. The three-part miniseries on YouTube follows the British comedian as he traveled to New Zealand and Australia at the beginning of the year to perform stand-up comedy shows as well as this travel series. Russell speaks to all walks of life, literally, chatting with some of the kookiest characters and cuddliest animals the countries have to offer. He brings his signature curiosity and humor to every interaction that makes this show enlightening, funny, charming, and a great reminder to book those plane tickets as soon as we’re allowed.
