"Rick certainly has plenty of national stereotypes to play on, but he soon steers clear of nationality clichés to deliver punchy observational gags about the little things that annoy everyone." - Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
Rick was adopted in Japan and then raised in a small town in New Jersey. Before stand-up, his jobs included US Army Intelligence in Germany, advertising copywriter in London and Homebase glass cutter in Leicester, where he went to university. Rick is now a British citizen and got on UK Gladiators in 1993. He took up comedy 3 years ago in London and has been gigging regularly ever since. He tells us what it"s like to be the "Constant Foreigner."
Recent gigs include open slots at: Jongleurs and Comedy Store and paid gigs at The Stand, Downstairs at the Kings Head and Comedy Cabaret in Philadelphia.
