"We have worked with Purple Cactus for several years and they always comes up with the goods. They work hard securing the most suitable act at the best possible price. So much so that we are now working with them on our biggest event ever.” – Specsavers


Rick Right

“The Rock & Roll Comic”, Rick Right is a unique comic and musical talent who stands in a class by himself.

With the uncanny ability to sing and play any song that has been a major hit over the past 50 years, even if he has never played it before, Rick has observations and sly-as-you-like sardonic witticisms to undermine every artist that deserves it. No artist who has ever charted, good or bad, is safe from Rick’s barbs.

In the early 1970’s, Brian and his best friend Monica Ganas started an act called Rick & Ruby that worked out of San Francisco. The act was a mix of music and comedy, with Rick mostly as the straight man, and became well-known among the Bay Area club scene.

“… be sure to see him before he discovers how shit it is here and f**ks off back to America!”  Viz

Within five years, the act, by then a trio with the addition of keyboardist Joshua “Raoul” Brody, was playing large venues all across the country, gaining national exposure through a 1979 tour as opening act for Robin Williams. From there came TV appearances on the national talk show circuit, as well as guest spots on “Mork & Mindy,” “The Pee Wee Herman Show,” and HBO’s Young Comedians Special.

In 1986, Monica, now married and mother of two, chose to retire from the scene to go back to school and get her Ph.D, while Brian chose to try a career as a solo stand-up with his guitar. During the whole Rick & Ruby era, Rick never had a surname, and needed one for a solo career. Enter an ex-girlfriend who was into numerology at the time, and she determined that Ricky Right would make him a 7, a good show business number to be, apparently. Brian just liked the sound of the name, but then when his first solo gig listed his name as Rick Right, he liked that better, forget the 7 stuff.

23 years, a few thousand gigs in 37 of the 50 states and 21 countries later, Rick Right is still out there, entertaining people sometimes one-third his age with his knowledge of all that’s good and bad and worth ridiculing in the world of music. He combines not only a love and knowledge of music, but is a fine guitarist, singer, impressionist, and humorist, and uses all those skills to create an act which delighted US audiences for 15 years before discovering a UK scene which liked him even more.

Brit audiences have appreciated not only the variety of music that he can explore in 30 minutes on stage, but also his ability to create on the spot material solely by audience suggestion.

PRICE BAND: Bronze £500 to £2,500
