I've performed at various festivals and was a tour guide for the Comedy Tourist event that happened during Daves Leicester Comedy Festival 2013, a show where audience members were taken round to different heritage sights of Leicester, to watch some stand up comedy from established comedians such as Tom Allen, Eric Lampart and Naz Osmanoglu amongst others.

Alongside doing stand up I also co-host my own comedy chat show Dan Nicholas Conversation Garden, where the audience members are interviewed about their lives. As well as featuring sketch challenges for audience members. Weve had several sell out shows, done a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and have just completed a (small) UK tour this year.

'his writing displays a sharp, obtuse wit across all his disjointed one-liners...Someone as inventive as this should have a future in comedy.' - Steve Bennett, Chortle.


Immensely brave use of Pinter-esque silences..a dangerous comedian who keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next outrageous non sequitur. The Western Gazette

'his creativity is remarkable.' - Broadway Baby
