Julie are you 6ft+ or something in no way does he look short. Nothing below average height in fact which isnt short

6ft 3 really? He never looked that tall. Nor does he have the face of a very tall man. 5ft 9 is believable though

WTH? Thought he was 6'3 on his show. Has the face of a tall guy too.... guess the camera shoots him at an angle/height that makes him look taller. 5'8.5

🎂🎈🎉 Happy Birthday Russell! 🎉🎈🎂
Wishing comedian Russell Howard a very happy Big 4️⃣0️⃣!
I don't think he's unduly worried about his height, and will give him a thoroughly respectable 5ft9 for his Birthday. 😆👌🎉

Looks about a weak 5"9 like olly murs!

He's definitely nearer 5'9 than a flat 5'8.

@Maria: He's probably nearer to 5'9 imo. He may be 5'10 in shoes too so i can see where you're coming from about how he might look taller.

Seriously? He's the same height as me? I lowkey thought that he was somewhere along the 5'9-5'11 range. Damn, guess looks can be decieving.

I'm really not seeing more than 2 inches between him and Boyle. He must be closer to 5'10.

I recall him saying on one of his shows he was 5ft10, his mum must be tiny because he's a head taller or more.

Saw him at Edinburgh recently, I'd say this looks about right, he does look taller on tv
Julie said on 23/Apr/16
he always looks so small

I would have thought 5'9, looks taller than 5'8..might be 5'8.5 and has dropped the half.

I think he is taller then this listing. Probably 5'9. He was pretty much the same height as Harry Judd & Tim Lovejoy (both 178cm) all similar footwear on Sunday Brunch.

He doesn't look 4 inches shorter than 6ft Frankie Boyle on Mock The Week. 5'9 absolute minimum. Closer to 5'10 I'd say.

Looks around 5'10 on TV but he could be shorter.

5'9 for sure

Saw him on Good news earlier and he looked particularly tall - the sort of 6' height with a 5'8" frame, so perhaps a lift wearer? One of the guests on the show even commented 'you're taller than I imagined'.

Ive met him in York and hes shorter than me (176cm) so i think 173cm is about right
LOL said on 18/Jun/13
Im sure hes 5 foot 10
said on 4/Jun/13
According to his resume, he is actually 172 cm: Click Here
[Editor Rob: when given 5ft 8 some might put it as 172 or 3, it's close enough to say 5ft 8 in any case.]

I would have said no more than 5ft 8.

That's about right for him, look at him stood next to Jonathan Ross as an example. Agree with some of these comments though, he has the proportions of a taller man
Matt said on 31/May/13
I would've thought maybe about 5'9'' or 5'10'' too, but I don't know why.
Don said on 30/May/13
5'8? I would expect something more into the 5'10 - 6'0 range, 5'9 min. He's definitely got the proportions of a tall guy.
MaskDeMasque said on 30/May/13
yeh he does, i thought he was 5'9 range.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 30/May/13
Wow really? Ill give another look to him but I personally thought he came across as a tallish/above average guy..5'10 or 5'11 when I clicked on his name..
SAK said on 30/May/13
He gives taller impression.
But 5f8 is probably correct for him.
