Smart, sharp and brilliantly astute, Kae Kurd is a young British-Kurdish stand up making a serious name for himself. Passionate about making politics accessible to his peers, his comedy presents beautifully crafted slick routines with confident cutting edge flair.

In 2016, he was part of the Pleasance’s prestigious Comedy Reserve showcase and supported Dane Baptiste on his nationwide tour.

In 2017 Kae took his debut hour Kurd Your Enthusiasm to the Edinburgh Fringe achieving excellent critical acclaim. His unique back story as a child refugee and his emergence from the Black British comedy circuit totally shining out amongst the newcomer landscape.

TV credits include: Know Your Rights (own series on Channel 4 OD), Comedians Solve World Problems (Comedy Central) Three Guys Eat (BBC Three) and BBC Asian Network’s Big Comedy Night. His radio appearances include A Night of International Comedy for BBC World Service and Best of the Fringe for BBC Radio 4 Extra. He’s also a regular radio presenter on BBC Asian Network.

Kae is also a recognised rising star in creating and curating short form content across a range of platforms, particularly notable for this hit podcast Quota’s Full.

With this kind of track record, he’s most definitely one to watch.

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
