A native of Buffalo, Russell has been performing his unique brand of political stand-up since Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. He continues to play off the day's headlines, performing stand-up comedy while accompanying himself on the piano. With impeccable timing, twinkling eyes, and shock-of-recognition insights into American politics, he draws merriment from the pomposity of public life. Reading three or four newspapers a day allows him to constantly update his material. The result is that no two shows are ever identical. “I thrive on newspapers,” he frequently states. “And it looks like I’ll be thriving longer than them.” And his answer to the frequently asked question, "Do you have any writers?" is "Oh, yes...I have 535 writers. One hundred in the Senate and 435 in the House of Representatives.”
