Russell Howard has criticised BBC’s part-owned satellite channel Dave as one of the biggest threats to comedy – even though it broadcasts his very on show.

In an interview with the Guardian, the comedian identified Dave as a threat due to the monotonous nature of its programming, saying “Everything is repeated there; they just play the same shows over and over.”

Known as ‘the home of witty banter’ Dave has established itself alongside Comedy Central as one of the go-to comedy TV channels in the UK. Among the shows Dave screens are repeats of Howard’s show Good News, and the panel show Mock The Week – which Howard was a former regular.

Speaking ahead of his new series of Good News Howard also revealed that the best advice he had ever been given was a written quote by T.E. Lawrence which said: "Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the day to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they act upon their visions with clarity and make them happen."

Russell Howard’s Good News returns to BBC Three at 9pm.
