Russell Hicks heads out on his first tour, but not his first rodeo. (Warning: This is a stand up show. NOT a rodeo.) Russell Hicks is here to stay and he really is happy to be here. So, why don’t British people believe him?
Hot off the back of a starring role in an Amazon Prime show that nobody watched, and was cancelled immediately, American stand Up comedian Russell Hicks, lives in the UK where he allegedly performs stand-up comedy. Naturally, his parents still think he makes his money through some kind of illegal activity, so buy some tickets and help prove his legitimacy!
You may have heard Russell as the voice of Sky Comedy, seen him entertain studio audiences at Have I Got News for You or caught him opening for the likes of Al Murray or Britain’s Got Talent winner Axel Blake. He’s performed up and down this country, picking up three Leicester Festival nominations along the way. He’s even been officially declared a Global Talent by Arts Council England.
Known for his improvised performances, Russell Hicks has amassed millions of views online, and gained a devoted following of fans who’ve come to know that no two shows will be the same. Considered one of the best improvisers in the country, Russell has appeared on some of the UK’s biggest networks. He has starred in several episodes of ITV’s Stand Up Sketch Show, and won the Channel 4 competition series Captive Audience with his fully improvised comedy, and starred in Prime Video series Lovestruck High narrated by Lindsay Lohan as the loveable Texan Coach Hughes.
