Nick’s career as a stand-up got off to a pretty good start, whilst still a student, Nick supported Bill Hicks on his final tour of the UK…Bill himself had requested Nick. Since then Nick has become a familiar face on the comedy circuit. Nick is also in demand as a writer for both television and radio, writing for the likes of ‘THE SECRET POLICEMAN’S BALL’, the Sony Award winning ‘ARMANDO IANNUCCI’S CHARM OFFENSIVE’ and ‘THE NOW SHOW’ for Radio 4. Cult animation series ‘EMPIRE SQUARE’, BBC4’s ‘LATE EDITION’, Channel 4’s ‘FAQ U’ and ‘8 OUT OF 10 CATS’.
“Quite brilliant. “ - THE SCOTSMAN
“Fully considered, from the heart, yet darkly hilarious …He explains himself in such a way, and with such spell-binding warmth that it’s difficult to feel offended.” - THE LIST
“Excellent stand-up, handled with intelligence, originality and some cracking gags to boot” - THE METRO
'A quirky very funny new stand up...her style is refreshingly original and she's a seriously good writer,' TIME OUT.
Harriet's talked on a stage all over the world - at places like The Sky Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Oslo Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs in Montreal. She has also supported some of her heroes on their nationwide tours, like Katherine Ryan, Stephen Merchant and Isy Suttie.
