Phil Nichol

A truly unique performer, Phil Nichol is an acclaimed actor, award-winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician. He is an energetic and exciting performer with an unquenchable thirst to break boundaries and innovate with his work. His skill as an improviser - whether it be musical, comedy or 'straight' - is unparalled. With a surreal edge to some of his mischievous rantings, Nichol always brings something new to the stage, his keen sense of fun and eye for the shocking and absurd has cemented his position as one of the best comedians on the circuit today.  His assured and award-winning performances in his theatrical work have attracted critical accolades and see him in great demand as an actor. The Edinburgh Guide described him as "the sexiest, funniest dichotomy on a stage today - vulnerable but kicks ass, smart but dumb, a lovely guy who does appalling things".
