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. Taking a different approach then most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row.
Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“"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
