Russell Hicks HEADLINING!

Now based in London, Russell has become known for his risk taking and thrillingly quick wit – his charismatic, improvisational style making him a huge force to be reckoned with. Hicks’ abstract, unapologetic views on life in the UK provide fresh perspective and insight into the mind of this young comic powerhouse. His infectiously rebellious personality immediately gets audiences on side and he exudes magnetic charm from the moment he steps onstage.

In the US, Russell has already appeared on several shows including Direct TV’s What’s News? and in the UK presents Yahoo’s online content Beat The Street and Room of Doom. He also hosts cult podcast Off The Grid which invites comedians to talk about what their life would be like without social media. Branded partnerships and commercial work already include Google, PayPal, Zipcar and a nationwide US voiceover partnership with Taco Bueno.

Hicks has also established himself as a major player on the UK comedy circuit, regularly hosting and headlining at clubs including Hot Water Comedy Club, Top Secret Comedy Club, The Stand, Glee Clubs, Up The Creek and The Boat Show, alongside his Stateside work with legendary venues The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory in Hollywood.

Indisputably talented, there’s no comic quite like Russell Hicks.

Thomas Green OPENING

Green is an engaging story-teller, and known for his face of elasticity and energetic stage presence. A former school teacher, Green swapped the whiteboard marker for a mic, and hasn't looked back since. His knack for crowd-work and improvisation has seen him become a sought after MC (Midlands Best MC Award nominee 2018), building a reputation on the UK circuit as an interactive and cheekily abrasive comic. Green began his career by selling out his first festival run in hometown Adelaide (2012), being nominated the following year for Best Emerging Comedy and since has only gone from strength to strength, selling out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe.

Green has not only been lively on the festival circuit, he's establish himself on the UK circuit since moving across the pond in 2015. His effervescent charisma and hilarious characterisations has him now playing nationwide at high profile clubs such as The Comedy Store, Komedia, Glee, Hot Water Comedy, Off The Kerb, Just The Tonic, Top Secret Comedy, Last Laugh, Laugh Out Loud Comedy, Punch Drunk, Rotunda Comedy, Frog and Bucket, and Funhouse Comedy. Green has also walked the comedy stages at established music festivals such as Download, Wilderness, Godiva, Y-Not and Tramlines Festivals. A comic on the rise, Green is not to be missed.
