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.
"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 - Aug-2014
Ben is a highly experienced and hugely well respected stand-up. He’s been performing comedy since 1993 and has developed an incredibly relaxed stage persona with an innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material. He has performed at comedy festivals the world over and has a wealth of experience in the tricky art of TV warm-up.
STEVE N ALLEN (MC)
Star of radio and the stand-up stage, Steve N Allen performs "★★★★ biting satire" (-Three Weeks) and "cutting wit" (-Time Out) with a "charming and witty persona" (-Chortle). A self-confessed news addict, Steve keeps his finger on the pulse of current affairs. Whether as an on-air news commentator or as "a performer with masses of talent" (-Fringe Review) on stage, Steve is "very funny and sometimes bizarre". (-Surrey Mirror)
Steve's stand-up has taken a path through being a BBC New Comedy semi-finalist, Laughing Horse New Act finalist and Amused Moose Hot Starlet, on to performing at The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Leicester Square theatre and The Comedy Cafe.
Steve has performed different versions of his topical comedy one-man show, The SomeNews Live Show, at several comedy festivals including Edinburgh, Manchester, Leicester, Brighton and Nottingham.
"Allen hits the mark, with an effusive mix of biting satire and gleeful mud-slinging that recalls Russell Howard by way of Ian Hislop. More than worth a look." ★★★★ - Three Weeks
