He starred in BBC1’s prime-time Saturday night programme ‘The Magicians’ and recently made special guest appearances on ITV1’s ‘The Next Great Magician.’ His skill for fusing magic and comedy has made him one of the most in demand magicians working on British television, writing and performing in magic shows such as ‘Monkey Magic’ (FIVE), ‘Dirty Tricks’ and ‘Derren Brown’s 3D Magic Spectacular’ (Channel 4) and ‘The Secret World of Magic’ (Sky One).
He has also made dozens of guest appearances on programmes like ‘The One Show’, ‘The John Bishop Show’, ‘BBC Breakfast’, ‘The Sarah Millican Television Programme’, ‘Celebrity Mastermind’, Gordon Ramsay’s Cookalong Live’, ‘Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford’, ‘This Morning’, ‘Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live’, ‘Comedy Cuts’, ‘Saturday Live Again!’, ‘Something For the Weekend’ and many more.
“He is the funniest and by far the most accomplished performer on the New Magic scene…funnier than most comedians and more magical than Dumbledore on a good day. This guy is a complete star” Time Out
“The new poster-boy for British comedy magic” The Telegraph
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.
"Hicks has 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" Broadwaybaby.com
"Russell Hicks is amazing" Comedy Palace
James Bran as MC
James Bran is a fast-rising talent on the UK comedy circuit. Refreshingly different, whilst still appealing to main stream comedy audiences, he's bringing his quirky blend of stand-up and comic poetry to clubs all over the country.
Despite being a relative newcomer to the comedy scene at large, James is a resident MC at both Crack Comedy and The Patchwork Club. This experience has made him a polished and confident performer belying his limited time as a circuit act.
