'Nichol is absolutely born to perform, and the show is brilliant' (The Skinny)
'Attacks his material with all the restraint of a Tasmanian Devil in a foghorn
factory' (The Times)
'Phil Nichol is an extraordinary performer – entrancing and alarming in equal measure' (The Stage)
'Very polished, witty and insightful. It is also extremely funny' (List)
'Seismically powerful award-winning comic force' (The Scotsman).
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.
