about me

Russell is an actor, writer, comedian and (oh no podcaster?) based in NYC. He's a founding member, writer, producer, and performer with award-winning sketch comedy group Uncle Function.

He is currently the Bud Standby for Gutenberg the Musical on Broadway with Josh Gad & Andrew Rannells. He was previously Ruth in the Off-Broadway hit musical Titanique!


He can also be heard on The Downside, a comedy podcast he was tricked into co-hosting with his neurotic but dear friend & uncle function member, Gianmarco Soresi. 


He also does Shakespeare! His past theater credits include: Mistress Quickly (American Shakespeare Center), Iago (Nebraska Shakespeare), King John (Nebraska Shakespeare),  The Ghost of Christmas Present (American Shakespeare Center) and Off-Broadway in Awesome 80s Prom and That Bachelorette Show. 


He previously performed on UCB Maude Night (RIP) and holds an MFA in Acting from the University of Houston.
