Good News is regularly the number one show on iPlayer across all BBC channels. The show returns for Series 7 in autumn 2012 and Series 8 in spring 2013.

Following a hugely successful sold-out solo run at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival in 2011, Russell was booked to perform stand-up on The Conan O'Brien Show (TBS, USA). He followed that up with an appearance at Sydney Opera House's International Comedy Gala alongside John Cleese, Louis C.K., Demetri Martin and Martin Short as well as performing his own sell-out solo show.
