Did anyone else see this? It was part of his Sky One programme this week. Not sure I can link on my iPad but the clip is on YouTube titled "Why are girls toys patronising and shit".. Nothing new or earth shattering in it but I just thought it was refreshing to see on mainstream tv

Does this help?

Or perhaps this if you are using the YouTube app

We'll see if this works!

Thanks Trills

I think it worked!

Russell Howard seems like a nice lad.

He's probably as old as me but he seems young somehow.

Brilliant, but you know it's sad that most of the audience will think he's made some good points, but if it was a female comedian, they'd laugh, but think she's just pretending to be a hard nosed feminist. Ironically, they will pay more heed to a man making those points, than a woman

He does have a talent for communication, whatever he talks about. I’ve seen some great stuff he's done. Presumably there are researchers gathering his material, but he delivers it very engagingly.

That was good and made me watch about 10 more videos of his. Never really watched him before but I seem to agree with a lot of what he says.
