Phil Nichol tour dates
Diminutive stand-up comedian making a big name for herself. Within seconds of appearing on stage, her flirty, gossipy, effervescent style charms everybody! She has written for many top comedians, including Johnny Vaughan, Gail Porter and Griff Rhys Jones, and starred on many TV stand-up comedy shows.
'Fizzing with inventive one-liners... a treat from start to finish' (The Herald)

'Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes of the everyday... genuinely delightful' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously cutting' (The Independent)
'She is like your witty friend who's always brilliant company down the pub. Many stand-ups would give their non-drinking arms to be able to transfer that kind of sparkling bar-room bonhomie to the stage and Porter does it effortlessly' (The Scotsman).
Lucy Porter tour dates
