Rick Kiesewetter


"Rick certainly has plenty of national stereotypes to play on, but he soon steers clear of nationality clich├ęs 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."
