Phil Nichol  - Twenty

Wow. Where does the time go? Edinburgh Comedy Award winner (2006) and nominee (2002) Phil Nichol has done 20 years of solo comedy shows. To celebrate this being his 20th year as a stand-up, he has decided to put on a best of 20 years show. It’s going to eye-poppingly, gut-wrenchingly funny! 

Phil Nichol is a truly unique performer.  An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician - there is no end to his talent! 
Phil is an energetic and exciting performer with an unquenchable thirst to break boundaries and innovate with his work.  His skill as an improviser whether it be musical, comedy or straight is unparalleled. With a surreal edge to some of his mischievous rantings, Nichol always brings something new to the stage whilst his keen sense of fun and eye for the shocking and absurd has cemented his position as one of the best comedians on the circuit today.
