His new book explains what it was like growing up with a gorilla Essex doorman dad

Russell Kane is an award-winning comedian who's flamboyant nature has been making the world laugh for years. But how did his flamboyancy go down in a home where his dad was his polar opposite?

Ahead of Russell's Olympia Theatre tour date, Dermot and Dave caught up with the energetic funster to chat about his The Fast and the Curious stand-up show and learn more about his alpha male father.

The 44-year-old explains how his dad went from a talented "looker" to ending up as "a bit of an embittered manual labourer howling at the sky about what could have been".

Kane then reveals why his show is the perfect gig for Dermot and Dave and how his wife plays such an important role in it;

I end up just telling unbelievable stories about Lindsey, my Manchester, Liam Gallagher, prosecco-head wife and the crazy stuff she makes me do
