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).
In late 2020 Eric was signed by Front Foot Talent management agency.
