Who is Konstantin Kisin?

Konstantin Kisin is multi-award winning comedian, podcaster, writer and social commentator.

He made international headlines in 2018 by refusing to sign a “behavioural agreement form” for a London university gig which prohibited jokes about religion, transphobia, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism as well as seven other ‘isms’ and insisted that all humour must be “respectful and kind”.

A proud Russian-Brit, he is the current Jewish Comedian of the Year and has played at some of the UK’s biggest comedy clubs, most recently performing his fantastic debut show ‘Orwell That Ends Well’ at the Edinburgh Fringe.

He’s also the creator and co-host of ‘TRIGGERnometry’ an online video interview show creating honest conversations with fascinating people. To date they’ve produced over 60 interviews with economists, political experts, journalists and social media personalities with a diverse array of social and political attitudes.

Described as ‘an objective voice from the centre of the political spectrum’ he’s appeared on the likes of BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain and Tucker Carlson Tonight; he’s a regular contributor to BBC, ITV, BBC Radio 5 Live and LoveSport, and he’s written for publications including The Telegraph, The Spectator, Quillette, Daily Mail and Spiked.

He’s also a regular host at Kilkenomics, the best economics and comedy festival in the world.
