Russell Hicks is one of the most sought-after comics across the UK and Europe. Combining American roots and razor sharp wit, he works regularly as a stand up, writer, voice over artist and actor.

Russell’s 2024 Tour “Happy to Be Here” will span the entire UK on a 7 month run, which includes London’s famed West End Leicester Square Theatre. Russell has appeared on some of the UK’s biggest TV networks. He has starred in several episodes of ITV's 'Stand Up Sketch Show' and won the Channel 4 competition series 'Captive Audience' with his fully improvised comedy. He starred in the Prime Video series ‘Lovestruck High,’ as the loveable Texan Coach Hughes.

Russell headlines every major club across the UK and Europe including The Stand, Glee Club and Up the Creek, with a monthly residency at Top Secret Comedy Club. He compères major events like the Leeds and Reading Festivals, as well as historic theatres like the Hammersmith Apollo.

Russell regularly opens for his friends Axel Blake (Winner of Britain’s Got Talent), Simon Brodkin, Al Murray, and more. He regularly entertains studio audiences at ‘Have I Got News For You,’ ‘The Last Leg,’ and ‘As Yet Untitled.’ Russell Hicks still can’t believe he gets to make people laugh for a living, travel the world, and most importantly not wake up early on Monday mornings.
