In 2007, Nick Doody shared the Giggling Guiri stage with Stewart Francis and stole the show with a fearless set contrasted with some wonderful whimsical musical comedy. There is something for everything in a Nick Doody show.
At GG HQ, we rate Doody the most underrated comic in the UK. He picked up several awards at the start of his career way back in 1996, enough to earn him the honour of supporting the great Bill Hicks on his last ever UK tour. Some of the fearlessness of Hicks certainly rubbed off and Doody has been a relentlessly consistent and uncompromising live performer on the UK circuit ever since.
Nick writes for a myriad of tv and radio shows. From the likes of ‘THE SECRET POLICEMAN’S BALL’, ‘ARMANDO IANNUCCI’S CHARM OFFENSIVE’ and 'THE NOW SHOW’ for Radio 4, to BBC4’s ‘LATE EDITION’, Channel 4’s ‘FAQ U’, ‘8 OUT OF 10 CATS’ and ‘FRIDAY NIGHT PROJECT’.He also created and wrote the wonderful hit Radio 4 series ‘BIGIPEDIA’
In 2006 he brought his full debut show to Edinburgh and for the last 5 years has become one of the most consistent and popular critically acclaimed performers at the Fringe leading to sell-out shows at the Glasgow Comedy Festival and Soho theatre in London´s West End. This year he decided not to do a full run in Edinburgh but unable to resist the lure of comedy´s mecca decided at the last minute to do just 10 nights of a ‘Greatest Hits Show’ . It was totally sold out and is what we will get in BCN this January.
It was summed up by arguably the UK’s most important comedy critic in the UK as...
‘...simply the best unadulterated, gimmick-free hour of pure stand-up I’ve seen so far this Fringe’ ***** Chortle
