Just isn't funny.

That's all I have to say really... The guy tries too hard.

Just had to get that off my chest.

I like him in a just falling asleep, safe comedy, can watch him with my Mum and Dad in a room kind of way.

Not many comedians can be funny and nice nowaday's he is pretty near that area.

How can you fall asleep with him shouting every 2 seconds. He's alright but the shouting does my head in.

I disagree.

Bill Bailey is funny but nice. This guy is just ordinary. And boring!

I actually like his delivery, but I wonder how many are on the team of writers.

Little old lady voices - no.

West Countr'y stuff - yes.

I also hear a lot of people say they can't stand Lee Nelson, but from what I've seen, I find him qualiteee smile

He's just so bland. His old lady/west country/monkey impressions is all he does.

And Lee Nelson. Err no.

Each to his own and all that, but can I ask why?

Have you heard about the NEW comic David Rigby, doing the north east london pubs circuit. Hilarious.

He'll be on telly in about 20 years once he starts using the jokes I write for him.

He definitely tries too hard, never was the funniest of people. I always watch his good news show but because the things featured are funny, not him. Always have to skip past the mystery guest section though because its so awkward and cringeworthy thats I cant stand it.

I find russell howard excellent, lee neslon is just a poor attempt at doing what ali G did 10 years ago.

I do like him, and like how he insisted on having the Good News Extra to give circuit comedians some exposure. If you are looking for a nice comic try Josh Widdicombe. He is brilliant and funny and I can see him being as big as Russell and someone you can watch with your parents. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCMWIBhKvi8

I really like Russell Howard - about the only comedian I would consdier going to see live, which leaves a lot who I wouldn't and a good chunk of those who I would actively avoid watching on TV too.....

He's alright. He seems like a really nice guy who knows how lucky he is and is enjoying life. I like his show, easy watching TV, I do like how he shows there is good in the world at the end of his show. No harm in that!

Not my favourite comedian but certainly don't think he warrants being thought of as rubbish, then again I can't stand that Lee Nelson, we all have our own tastes.
