Russell Hicks Introduces

Thumb

Russell Hicks Introduces is a new concept for 2017 at Rocksalt Comedy nights.

Russell Hicks is an amazing comic from the US whose brilliant, random, improv style of Comedy has made him one of the most popular comics on the UK with both audiences and other comics.

“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage. Brilliant” Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club

At Rocksalt you will be treated to Russell opening the gig with his usual style. He will then introduce one of his personal favourite acts to close the gig.

Zhara Barri - Support

Zahra hit the stand up scene in February 2011 and has since been a 2013 Bath New Act of The Year Finalist, a Funny Woman (in association with Company Magazine) Finalist, Laughing Horse New Act at Brighton Fringe Finalist, Comedy Cafe New Act 2012 Finalist, beaten ‘The Frog’ at The Frog and Bucket and reached the Semi Finals of The Picadilly New Act of The Year Competition.

She has also gigged with Gail Porter and supported notorious ‘Best Seller’ and International Drug Baron (!) Howard Marks.

So much so that she hosts a weekly Radio Show called ‘The She Must Be Joking Show’. The show is a comedy fuelled, topical talk show, mainly poking fun at celebrity and entertainment news.

‘Zahra Barri who is Irish/Egyptian: a combination which makes stand-up comedy an almost unavoidable career choice, and had some unexpected Muslim viewpoints on blind dates and bikini waxing, and a terrific gag about the similarity between stand-up comedy and terrorism’ Venue Magazine

Harriet Dyer - Support

Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this new act is making a big noise.

Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise.

A unique comic voice, Dyer charms any room with matchless material, an offbeat stage presence and a truly whirlwind fizz of energy.

A strong You Tube following has emerged for Harriet’s channel; interviews with comedians and clips of comics car sharing have been given a unique twist with Harriet at the helm, and there’s plenty more to come.

Harriet’s debut full length solo outing “Barking at Aeroplanes’ premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, it explored her myriad escapades, which often end in folk questioning her mental health, her tales consistently delving into the thin line between ‘eccentric’ and ‘mental.’

“Dyer made the audience feel at home and managed to wow the crowd… Loveable and delightful”
