Russell Hicks - Edinburgh Preview - Headliner
Russell Hicks is taking another show to the Edinburgh Fringe this year. This is a chance to see a one off preview of the show for a ridiculous price!
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to 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.
“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. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentleman’s imagination. 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.

Mark Simmons - Edinburgh prveview - Headliner
Mark presents his new solo show packed full of inventive one-liners. Last time he was in Edinburgh he got mugged. Good news: they got put away. Bad news: they’re probably out now and his stupid face will be plastered all over town saying where he’ll be and when.
Mark has a great twelve months, appearing at all the top Comedy clubs in the UK and supporting Sean Walsh, Rob Brydon and Rob Beckett on tour.
