With storytelling comics there's a moment where the audience asks themselves 'I wonder if that's true?'. With Nick there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there's the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster.
He's definitely one of those people you shouldn't like but do. He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system, nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV, nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse.
Nick's comedy has taken him all over the world, and he has performed at military bases across the UK and has completed five tours of Afghanistan as a performer. His debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. He is in enormous demand in comedy clubs throughout the UK, as a headline act and MC, and has been for the last 12 years.
