Ricky Powell

Ricky has been performing on the comedy circuit for over a year. Based in Surrey, with a full driving licence, he's not the youngest (and certainly not the tallest!) comedian on the circuit.  A confident and comfortable performer, having previously been involved in performing arts for many years, Ricky mixes it up with original one-liners, observations about himself and trickier subjects like 'death' which are closer to his heart than he would like.  Ricky provides a great contrast to the tight T shirts and chinos brigade, although he is willing to try such attire but, to be frank, it simply doesn't fit!

His very first comedy gig was at the Ark pro comedy club in Caterham. Ricky regularly performs for Mock Tudor Comedy in Walton on Thames to sell out (100+) audiences and has more recently performed his set at the Orange Tree in Richmond, Surrey.   Currently looking for 10 minute spots.

Previous TV work includes the Fast Show and This Life.  Ricky auditioned for Harry Potter in the first two films but was rejected - for being too old...  He has in the past performed in the theatre and London fringe shows including an extended run of Derby Day, a play revived and directed by James A Bicker - 'A comedy tour de force - it was the skill of the cast which made the show' - The Sunday Times

Here's some nice stuff that people have said about Ricky as a comedian:

'End of the pier stuff, with a modern twist ...effortlessly funny...' Alex Dean - Onfm Radio (2012)

'My friends loved you - very professional' Graham Roos - author and poet (2012)

'I pray for your success at stand-up....' Alom Shaha - author of the top selling book 'A Young Atheist's Handbook' (published on 19 July 2012)

'Strong set... packed with wordplay and cheekiness...'  Martin Wyatt - Dead Comedian's Socks (2013)

'What's your name...?'  Stewart Lee (when signing his book for Ricky)

Ricky has performed on the same bill as James Acaster, Andi Osho and Bridget Christie although he readily accepts that none of them probably caught his set.  Oh, and, yeah, it was on a new material night - for them at least!
