When is Russell Howard & Mum: Globetrotters on?

Launch date for Comedy Central travelogue

Russell Howard and Mum: Globetrotters has been given a launch date by Comedy Central.

The six episodes, in which the pair tour Far East, will launch on Comedy Central at 10pm on January 23.

Each new instalment will run for an hour, twice as long as the 30 minutes of Russell Howard & Mum: USA Road Trip which ran in 2016 and 2018.

The first series was the highest rated new commission on the channel of 2016.

On their tour, Russell and Ninette train as assassins in Japan,  a Bollywood training school in Mumbai, and learn water puppetry in Hanoi. Other stops nicked high-tech Seoul, the paradise island Koh Phangan, Thailand, and an encounter with nature in, Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

Last week, female comedians were demanding to know why TV never commissioned women-led travelogues.
