My type of comedy
29 May 2014 | by axel_olSee all my reviews

Everyone has different opinions of everything but it is clearer differences in comedy. I love Russell Howard's good news and I really enjoy the humor around current events and the crazy news stories they find. This does not mean in any way you will actually like it. This show is more fitting with younger audiences that can handle a little bit of offensive sex jokes, jokes about the royal family of England and other famous people. A certain grade of tolerance is needed.

If you are a teen or in your twenties you might like it. This is not really recommended for older audiences or people who are too mature to enjoy life. This show may make you laugh until you cry or make you send a complaint to BBC and everything in between. See it and decide for yourself. Personally I can't stop watching it.
