Howick is probably best known as one of the stars of CBBC's Horrible Histories, in which he performs and sings in character as a number of historical figures, including George IV, Richard III and the 'Shouty Man' (a parody of an infomercial huckster).
Along with the five other members of the Horrible Histories starring cast, Howick is also the co-creator, -writer and -star of Yonderland, an eight-part family fantasy comedy series that premiered on SkyOne on 10 November 2013. He will co-star with the same troupe in Bill, a BBC-produced comedy film based loosely around the early life of William Shakespeare. Filming began in February 2014 and the film is due for release early in 2015.
Other prominent television roles include Gerard in Peep Show, Gerry in Danny Boyle's Babylon and Anthony in the revival of Reggie Perrin. In addition he has been a regular guest star in various sketch comedies, including The Armstrong and Miller Show and The Kevin Bishop Show
In 2010 Howick won a Children's BAFTA for his performance in Series Two of Horrible Histories.
