Embarking on a comedy career
Russell Kane first began his career in comedy after wowing judges from Laughing Horse in 2004. The following year, Kane joined fellow comics like Russell Howard and Reginald D Hunter on the national tour of Paramount Edinburgh and Beyond. His antics on this tour cemented his reputation as a comic to be watched, with him being asked to perform to a live crowd during the recording of the World Comedy Tour in Australia in 2005. More of his live performances would be screened on BBC Three in 2006, promoting him to a wider audience. He became known to an even bigger audience in 2006 with the launch of Five US, a channel for which he was asked to write and present a series of comic travelogues.
He continued to maintain a career in stand-up comedy, performing to massive audiences at the Hammersmith Apollo for BBC show, Live at the Apollo. He returned to perform to live audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008 with shows including Fakespeare and Human Dressage/, the latter of which saw him nominated for his third award at the festival. After a successful career as a television presenter, Kane refocused his attention on his stand-up career, recording and releasing two stand-up DVDs titled Smokescreens & Castles Live and Russel Kane Live.
