"Phil Nichol is a born entertainer, he can do everything from musical comedy to one-liners, storytelling, characterisation, blue comedy — you name it."
"Every Nichol gig is unique, it has to be lived, you just have to be there, to absorb the atmosphere he creates and of course laugh until the stomach muscles ache for they surely will."
