Rhys Nicholson is an Australian person originally from Newcastle, New South Wales, now living in Sydney.
After moving to Sydney in 2009, Nicholson had limited success as a comedian until in 2012 he won the Time Out Award for Best Newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival. Since then Rhys has gone on to perform all over the world, including New York, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin’s Vodafone Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival and London’s classy SOHO Theatre.
In 2014 he was the co-host with Joel Creasey of ABCTV’s celebrated documentary GayCrashers. The documentary saw the duo traveling to the small town of Colac and performing a stand up show after Creasey had been involved in a homophobic attack on an earlier visit to the town.
In 2016, to highlight the importance of marriage equality in Australia, Rhys publicly married lesbian and fellow comedian Zoe Coombs Marr at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. That year he and Coombs Marr were also both nominated for the Barry Award for Best Show. Zoe Won.
His style of humour was fresh, daring and definitely killed. ✭✭✭✭
