MC: Russell Hicks

"Russell Hicks is Amazing" - Comedy Palace
MC Chris Betts Stand-up Live

A sharp wit. The pessimism of Jack Dee mixed with the deadpan aggression of Denis Leary. A riproaring night of tough love from a witty comedian is what one can expect, voted as one of the hottest talents around, we have been lucky to have Russell as Grinstocks MC for over 3 years.

2017 saw him storm Edinburgh again and win numerous awards during the festival, with guest appearances on NBC’s “Before the morning after" as well as voted one of the top 6 comedians to watch by LA’s Stand Up Talk Magazine. Always prolific and consistently delivering quality new work, no two shows are ever the same.

What the press have to say:
"Absolutely smashed it last night. What was most impressive is that he somehow managed to completely improvise for the entire 30 minutes, which I have never seen done before. I have worked in numerous different comedy venues and I have also never seen a comedian get a huge round of applause for simply leaving the green room, which Russell did. I believe he has a bright future in comedy with his unique talent to riff so well.", - Bearcat
"It's impressive to witness the fountain of verbal gold that comes out of the comedian." - NerdsDoItBetter
"a gift - very funny" - Stand Up Talk
"Russell Hicks is Amazing" - ADN
"He had us in stitches.. non stop laughs" - NoFrillsThrills
"Russell was great last night in Cranbrook - doing a middle spot between Gary Delaney and Bob Mills was a tall order but he carried it off with aplomb. Given his performance I would be happy to have him at any of my clubs anytime" - Lonestar Comedy
"Probably one of the best we have had since we have been doing the comedy nights in two years!" - Richard, Potters Arms
"One of the Top Six Comics to Watch" - Stand Up Talk Magazine
