Best Festival Debut 2015 nominee, Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival
Best Breakthrough Act 2014 runner-up, Midlands Comedy Awards
Shortlisted for 2013 BBC New Comedy Award

It’s hard to describe exactly what Dan Nicholas is, here is 34 words that attempt to do just that:

Comedian. Funny. Alternative. Interactive. Surreal. Deadpan. Jokes. Listening bits. Concerning. Shaking. Warped. Hilarious. Very Interactive. Intimidating. Frightening. Lonely. Boarderline Psychotic. Silent. Pauses. Still Interactive. Engaging. Dishevelled. Observational. One-liners. Charming. Slapstick. Handsome? Terrifying. Spindly. Dan.Nicholas.

Dan's first Solo Reverb (The Love Story of Terrance the Crocodile and Julia the Mannequin) is a surreal anti-love story. In reverse. Terrance obsesses on becoming a semi-pro ukulele player, but what about Julia? Think 'Memento' meets '500 Days of Summer' and you're getting close.

“Someone as inventive as this should have a future in comedy” - 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

The Kinky Boot Institute

This show is the comedy love child from established northern comedian Lewis Charlesworth, and super actress Rosie Phillips. A completely original piece it takes you to far reaching places, propelling high energy, silly satirical scenes at you with music, dance, day to day observations and up to the minute cultural references.

Kinky Boot Institute has been lighting up arts festivals, around the country, over the past two years and is delighted to make its Darlington Comedy Festival debut.

Described as being a cross between 'The Mighty Boosh, League of Gentlemen and the Office'
