Boasting two of comedy’s most prestigious awards: The Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2010 and the Barry Award, Russell Kane has firmly established himself as one of the best comics in the UK today. 

He was recently on our screens hosting the third series of Live at the Electric for BBC Three, as well as co-hosting Staying In with Russell and Greg and Unzipped also on BBC Three and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. 

Also a regular on Radio and TV panel shows, Russell has appeared on Celebrity Juice (ITV), Mock the Week (BBC2), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), is a regular guest on The Wright Stuff (Five), It’s Your Round (BBC Radio 4) and A Good Read (BBC Radio 4) and Britain’s Got More Talent (ITV2), to name but a few. 

Proving he has many strings to his bow, April saw the publication of Russell's debut novel The Humorist, to rave reviews, truly marking his entry into the literary sphere.
