Consultant; Stand-up Comic; Research and Project Specialist, Henry/Adams Companies
Hicks began performing stand-up comedy when he was 24 and has made a career out of it. He is a founder of OKCcomedy, which works to bring nationally recognized comedians to Oklahoma and book local comics to open for them. In 2010, Hicks won the 2010 OKC Comedy Competition. He has opened for nationally touring comedians, including Paul F. Tompkins, Kyle Kinane and Rob Delany. He’s a huge Thunder fan, and once had the opportunity to win $20,000 at a game by making a half-court shot. “I missed, which means I still have student loans,” he says. Hicks also devotes a lot of time to causes, including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Pros for Africa, The Chad Peary Fund, Norman Food Bank and Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity.
