Edinburgh Award-winning Comedian

Within a few years of scooping Edinburgh’s biggest award, Russell had two new BBC3 series to his credit: Live At The Electric and Unzipped. He’s since turned to Staying In With Greg & Russell, written his debut novel, guested on Celebrity Juice and compered the Real Variety Show – to massive acclaim.


Multi-award-winning comedian, presenter, author and scriptwriter, Russell Kane is best known for his BBC Sounds podcast, Evil Genius which has become a flagship show, and was the best performing original podcast on the platform. His other podcast Man Baggage, finds Russell and his celebrity panel unpack the emotional baggage men spend their lives avoiding.

Russell won the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for his show ‘Smokescreens and Castles’. To challenge himself further, he produced a more unconventional Edinburgh show with his critically acclaimed hit Fakespeare: The Tragickal Savings of King Nigel, a bawdy romp set in a modern-day Essex where everyone speaks in Shakespearean verse.

His TV appearances include The Apprentice You’re Fired, The One Show, Live At The Apollo, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Antiques Road Trip, as well as regular appearances on Steph’s Packed Lunch.

Russell also continues to provide his ever-popular topical online rants known as ‘Kaneings’ on his YouTube channel.

Agent Recommendation

Russell drops in hilarious quips throughout the evening. He's intelligent and respectful, but he’s also playful and cheeky – it’s very funny to see him put off his stride whenever a stunning looking woman joins him onstage. The audience is onside for the duration. JLA Agent Emily Collier
