James Christopher: Bring Me the Head of Russell Kane
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2012
Combining the titles of the previous two Fosters' Comedy Awards winners* to create something doubly funny (though admittedly less successful). *Bring Me The Head Of Adam Riches (2011) and Russell Kane (2010). James explains: 'My fascination with comedy inspired me to acknowledge the acts who’ve elevated stand-up as an art form. My background in advertising reminded me that it's better to steal ideas which have already proved popular.'
