Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his older next door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy - Delirious.'It was the most mindblowing thing I'd ever heard. My young ears had never heard language like it.' His comedy aspirations lay dormant until he got a job as a barman at a comedy club in Greenwich, South London. Then in 2004 following some back slapping by those around him, Rich Wilson hit the stage and even amazing himself, hasn't looked back since. 'Highly entertaining' (Time Out) 'Effortlessly funny, smart and filthy. Recommended' (Leicester Mercury) 'He's a very, very funny man' (Frank Skinner).

With a likeable manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, Nelson often has audiences laughing at things they know they really shouldn’t be laughing at. An MA degree in Politics from Glasgow University supports his brilliantly topical writing and, although his stand-up is certainly not for the easily offended, the material is intelligent, well conceived and beautifully crafted, all supported by a very confident delivery. He is therefore a very sought-after comedian and writer, with both the skill and intellect to be able to adapt his material to suit and entertain any club, theatre or corporate audiences. Prepare to be shocked. 'A star in the making' (The List) 'An unquestionably talented writer and performer... great jokes, and lots of them' (The Daily Telegraph) 'A remarkably accomplished stage presence... blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste' (The Sunday Times).

"Incredibly and effortlessly funny, had the audience in the palm of his hand as soon as he stepped on the stage. If you haven’t seen him yet, then I strongly suggest you make haste to do so." — Comedy Cow Blog

Oldham-born-and-bred comic who epitomises the laddish, male perspective on the world. After cutting his teeth on the Manchester comedy circuit, he is now a national act, appearing across the country and occasionally on the BBC. Not for the easily offended. 'His tall tales can lead anywhere on any given night' (The Times) 'A rare mixture of wit and charm' (The Guardian) 'Probably the quickest I’ve ever seen, certainly the funniest' (The Big Issue).
