SINCE moving from his homeland of Cumbria, Russ Peers has begun his new life in London.

Full of sophistication, the Northern comic has come a long way from the supermarket checkout he once worked behind.

His show, Hereditary Peers reflects on the traits which he is now realising he picked up from his parents and starts to question how little or how much his life has actually changed since moving away.

With a unique anecdotal style he aims to use the tales of his North to South transition to entertain audiences at this years Festival Fringe.

Russ Peers was a recent finalist of BBC New Comedy Awards and is returning to the fringe following his first solo forty minute show Russ Peers: Bad Gay! Which was noted as Gay Times Magazine ‘Essential Edinburgh Fringe Shows to See’.
