British comedian Russell Howard has recorded a stand-up special for Netflix. The show was recorded over two nights over the weekend at the Brighton Dome.

The special is being produced by Avalon and directed by Peter Orton. It's executive produced by Richard Allen-Turner, Howard himself, James Taylor and Jon Thoday for Avalon and Lisa Nishimura and Robbie Draw for Netflix.

It was recorded in 4K – a format with four times as many pixels as high definition – and will be released in the autumn.

Howard's biggest tour to date is just drawing to a close. It's seen him play a record-breaking 10-night run at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and perform the biggest ever stand-up show in China. In total, it's encompassed 85 performances, spanning the UK, USA, Canada, Europe, China, New Zealand and Australia.

James Taylor, executive producer for Avalon, said: "Netflix has a reputation that is second-to-none for stand-up specials and we're delighted to be working with them to bring Russell's globally popular stand-up to their audience around the world."

Howard added: "I'm really looking forward to making a special for Netflix, I've enjoyed watching so many of their stand-up specials and to record my own for them is great."

Netflix now has more than 100 million viewers around the world.
