Rhys Nicholson: Seminal (Underbelly and Phil McIntyre Management)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2018

Sharply dressed and with a flash of red hair, Nicholson’s character filled the room from the start. Confident, camp and charming (yet outright acerbic) he is, quite simply, blisteringly funny. You’ll soon understand why he’s already an award-winning comic in his native Australia, with a ‘Live From The BBC’ show under his belt. With the theme of relationships carrying the show along, ‘Seminal’ is masterfully cohesive. The thinking person’s millennial, there’s plenty for those of us in that bracket, but he’s still broadly appealing. If nothing else, you’ll want to hear about his time working on a cruise ship. Catch him early before it’s too late, this is definitely one to add to your list.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
