Besides that, he has also been handpicked to support some of the biggest names in comedy, including international superstars Jim Jefferies, Bill Burr and Anthony Jeselnik, and has also acted in some award-nominated stuff. (Nick would like to point out that he had nothing to do with that. Whatevs.)
His stand-up has been featured on the ARIA Award-nominated DVD Dave Hughes Is Handy (Roadshow Films), ABC2’s Comedy Up Late and Best Of The Sydney Comedy Fest and Just For Laughs Sydney on the Comedy Channel.

In 2016, Nick made his US late-night television debut on Conan, returned to the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, had two runs at London’s Soho Theatre, filmed his second comedy special What Of It? at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and generally kicked ass at home in Australia and around the globe.
2015 saw Nick perform on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Opening Night Allstar Supershow (Ch 10), sell out his Australian solo stand-up tour Beard Game Strong, take Edinburgh by storm in his debut with his show that was in the Top-10 highest reviewed at the Edinburgh Fringe, return to acting on the small screen in Please Like Me (ABC/Pivot) and the second series of TV sketch comedy hit Kinne (7Mate), represented Australia at the Johannesburg Comedy Festival and returned to Afghanistan to entertain the troops at Christmas.
In 2014, he shot his debut stand-up special Here’s Trouble at the Metro Theatre in Sydney, starred in all six episodes of the smash-hit TV-sketch show Kinne on 7Mate, guest starred on Josh Thomas’ award-winning comedy/drama Please Like Me on ABC2 and was invited to perform at the world famous Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
This followed an action packed 2013, where Nick was invited by the Australian Defence Force to perform in Afghanistan for the troops and on top of that, became one of only a handful of Australians to be invited to perform stand-up on the US television network, Comedy Central. Once he returned from the US in November, he went back to the Middle East to perform for the Australian Defence Force on board the HMAS Melbourne whilst it was at sea.
Nick has played to sold-out crowds at all the major Australian festivals over the last seven years with his full-length solo shows Come On Fire (2017), Come Get Some (2016), Beard Game Strong (2015), Here’s Trouble (2014), Inappropriate (2013), Sinful Thinking (2012), Back To School (2012), It’s Not You, It’s Her (2011) and Lust Actually (2010). Nick has also toured extensively around Australia and Asia on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow and Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase tours and, in 2017, performed his fourth solo season at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, as well as dates around the UK and his first extended tour of Europe.
(Nick is represented by MZA in UK, Ireland and Europe and by Century Entertainment in Australia and R.O.W.)
