Guest Appearance on NBC’s “Before The Morning After”

Appearances on LA based panel show Direct TV’s ‘What’s News?’

A regular guest on hit podcast -Talkin’ Sh*t with Eddie Ifft.

One of the most exciting comics to come out of America, Russell Hicks is branded one of the 'Top Six Comics to Watch' by LA's Stand Up Talk Magazine. He has appeared on LA based panel show Direct TV's 'What's News?' and is a regular guest on hit podcasts such as Talkin' Sh*t with Eddie Ifft.

Headlining the nationally acclaimed student circuit in the United States, Russell regularly takes his hour long solo shows across the country to the biggest universities. Prolific and consistently delivering quality new work, audience members are often compelled to return for two nights in a row. Fast and loose, no two shows are ever the same.

He really is a force to be reckoned with, he holds a unique ability to perform with no prewritten material or jokes, a true master of comedy and an electric performance is always assured whenever he performs.

What the press have to say:

"Hicks has a sharp wit.. the pessimism of Jack Dee mixed with the deadpan aggression of Denis Leary. A rip roaring night of tough love from a witty comedian ****", Broadwaybaby.com - Aug-2014

“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

"Russell Hicks was a surprising highlight for me – American standup who wove wide-ranging improvisation and interaction with the crowd with deprecating jokes about American stereotypes and a wry swipe back at British culture... very funny.", Ashbourne Voice - Jul-2014

"Russell Hicks is Amazing", Comedy Palace

Edd Hedges 19 Jan 18.jpg

At only 23, Edd appears to be older and wiser than his years and has all the hallmarks of a very promising career. With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy Edd Hedges has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed.

Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show (Edinburgh 2014) and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival which also marked his radio debut on Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith. Edd also recently guest starred in an episdoe of Joe Sutherland and Stephen Bailey's On The Rocks podcast.

Taking the UK circuit by storm, Edd can also be seen performing his unique style of ridiculous anecdotes in various comedy clubs such as The 99 Club, Just The Tonic, Jongleurs, Komedia and the family-friendly show, Comedy Club 4 Kids. 

Edd’s debut Edinburgh Fringe show Wonderland impressed audiences and critics alike, with many praising Edd's uniquely disarming comic style and talent for storytelling.

Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017, Alasdair has featured on BBC radio as a comedian and sketch writer, and performed stand-up across the UK, at Glastonbury, Citadel Fest, the Udderbelly Southbank and at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Daniel Muggleton Edit 2 (1).jpg

Daniel Muggleton is an Australian stand-up comedian from Sydney, which is objectively a better city than Melbourne, just trust him. He is currently based in London, UK.

He has sold out shows at festivals around Australia: Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Canberra Comedy Festival, Darwin Fringe & Sydney Fringe - as well as at The Edinburgh Fringe. Daniel was twice selected as a FRESH Artist to Watch at The Sydney Comedy Festival in 2014 & 2015, he has been invited to perform an encore of his 2016 show ‘Let Me Finish’ at The Comedy Store, Sydney and performed as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour & Break Out Showcase in 2017.

Daniel’s debut album ‘Let Me Finish’ was released in 2017 by Grammy Award-Winning US label Comedy Dynamics. He’s the first Australian comedian they’ve ever produced… suck it, Rove.

Outside of festivals, Daniel hosts the annual Jokes To Bang To Comedy Tour of rural universities and has been invited to open for big dogs Neel Kolhatkar and Steve Hofstetter. Once he performed stand-up at a gay wedding in Sydney before they were legal, because he’s a rebel.

Daniel occasionally does other things. Sometimes he hosts big events such as Burgapalooza, Pigsty in July, Oktoberfest Canberra and Canberra Commons Street Feast Trivia. He’s written for A Rational Fear (FBi) & award-winning web series SYD2030. He’s also been seen on Australian TV’s The Feed (SBS) in a weird sketch with super cool lady Lee Lin Chin.

Daniel was born and raised in Sydney, spent his childhood playing cricket, hating Brett Lee and not having siblings. He graduated from The University of New South Wales with a Law Degree thanks to Lyndon Goddard’s very thorough notes. Cheers mate, my parents appreciate it.
