2011’s big new name in comedy, the star of 'Comedy Rocks', 'Let’s Dance For Comic Relief', 'Live At The Apollo' and co-host of ITV2’s 'I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here NOW!' In his debut stand-up show. Last year’s winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award, Smokescreens & Castles is inspired by Russell’s moving relationship with his dad and the consequences of owning their council house. Very funny storytelling and a whirlwind of high energy contortions are guaranteed - it’s an unforgettable comic experience which will leave you wanting more.
Russell Kane has written and performed this show masterfully. It is intensely funny, mixing observation, slapstick humour and wordplay with an engaging personal story. The show slides seamlessly from its more serious parts back into the funny side of things without being a downer despite its serious message.
Gave it 4 stars for the audio because the show, which I've also seen live, does have some excellent visual elements that the audio can't capture.
