Headlining the night is Nick Page
With storytelling comics there’s a moment where the audience asks themselves ‘I wonder if that’s true?’. With Nick there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there’s the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster.
He’s definitely one of those people you shouldn’t like but do. He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system, nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV, nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse.
Nick’s comedy has taken him all over the world, with performances in (wait for it) France, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Austria, Cyprus, Egypt, Turkey, Crete, China, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Afghanistan, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Spain, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, The Czech Republic, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Singapore, Vietnam, Bali, Indonesia, Malaysia and Russia.
Nick placed second at ‘The English Comedian of the Year’ 2016. His debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. He is in enormous demand in comedy clubs throughout the UK, as a headline act and MC, and has been for the last 12 years.
The MC for the evening is James Ryan who has been described as “A pretty mean joke teller and when I say mean I mean distinctly average” and “has really short shins”
