Phil Nichol

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 unparalled. With a surreal edge to some of his mischievous rantings Nichol always brings something new to the stage, 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.

His assured and award winning performances in his theatrical work have attracted critical accolades and see him in great demand as an actor. This summer, Phil is filming Holy Flying Circus – a BBC drama about the censorship of Monty Python’s Life Of Brian – in which he will be playing Terry Gilliam, alongside Rufus Hound and Steve Punt.

“Seismically powerful award-winning comic force.”
