Downstairs at the Drayton Returns
Award winning Phil Nichol coming soon
The comedy returns at the Drayton this Friday, with award-winning Phil Nichol headlining.
Book now, it's a show not to be missed!
Nichol is a truly unique performer. An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician there is no end to his talent.
He 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 both a comic and actor.
