Unabridged spoken word poet/educator

Practiced in the art of stand-up comedy, Russell Cummings’ brand of raw imagery and intricate wordplay keeps audiences on edge whether in classrooms, on street corners, or at a sold out club. Russell’s energetic stage performance and intellectual crowd engagement is what would have happened if Richard Pryor produced Def Poetry Jam. Russell’s poetry has been featured on Good Day Sacramento, Capitol Public Radio, and all over Northern California stages. Russell also enjoys long walks on the beach and he’s an Aries.
