“Eric Rushton is absolutely brilliant” - PAUL SMITH

​​Since his comedy debut in 2014, Eric Rushton has been mixing with the best newcomers on the comedy scene, and impressing audiences with his intelligent, playful material and likeable, self-deprecating stage persona.

 

In January 2020 he won the prestigious 'Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year' award - an award that was previously won by the likes of Romesh Ranganathan, Jason Manford and Jonny Vegas on their way to stardom.

 

Before that he was a Chortle Student finalist in 2016 and So You Think You're Funny? finalist 2017. He is a regular performer at the UK's biggest comedy clubs and festivals (or at least he was before it was all cancelled).

After getting a sniff of his success, agents swarmed around Eric like vultures and he is now pleased to be represented by Frontfoot Talent.
