Phil Nichol: The Simple Hour

5 Stars *****

Phil Nichol is such a versatile performer it just isn’t fair to the rest of us mortals.

Nichol is an award winning actor. Nichol is an accomplished musician. Nichol won the Perrier Award for his comedy a few years back. And yet he comes back, thank God, year after year to entertain his legion of fans once more.

Again this year he has reverted to doing simply an hour’s worth of stuff with no complex characters, just being himself, the crazy, wacky, funny hyperactive comedy genius and musician that only he can do at once.

It is obvious that he is enjoying the gig as much as his packed out audience are, this flows from the stage and engulfs one and all.

Okay perhaps some of the stuff has been aired before, but then it is quality stuff and that can always be seen more than once. Certainly his regular fans lapped it up and the new converts hopefully were impressed too.

Now this show is selling out almost every performance and it is not a huge room. So today would be a good day to book your ticket before they are all gone.
