Never miss another 'Nick Revell' show
No Pressure to be Funny: Nick Revell, Alistair Barrie
The topical and satirical panel show and podcast No Pressure to be Funny continues its residency at Soho Theatre. No captions, no captains, no competitions, just funny, informed and acerbic discussion of the world and what’s going on with comedians, journalists, politicians and campaigners.
One of the original alternative comedians of the early 1980s, Nick was nominated for the Perrier award in 1987. He was the resident compere at The Comedy Store for 10 years and in 1989 he had a BBC Radio 4 show and BBC1 TV show, both called 'Nick Revell'.
He also wrote for BBC radio classics 'Week Ending' and 'The News Huddlines' along with a host of contributors who included Ged Parsons, Oleg Stepaniuk, Nick & Roger Saunders, Michael Dines and Bob & Barbara Boulton.
'A master craftsman' (Time Out)
'Scalpel-sharp satirist' (Evening Standard)
'Satirically brilliant... travel miles to see him' (The Guardian).
Nick Revell tour dates
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
