Phil Nichol: Your Wrong

UFFCULME, THE VENUE. 8PM

Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner

#2 Best Reviewed Show at Edinburgh Festival

The award winning and critically acclaimed Canadian comedian Phil Nichol has announced a UK Tour for 2018.  Phil, who is currently starring in the new West End musical ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’, will be bringing his latest hour ‘Your Wrong’ to venues across the UK – including Uffculme!

Phil Nichol: Your wrong. Trump. Your wrong. Brexit. Your wrong. Facebook. Your wrong. Tinder. Your wrong. Religion. Your wrong. Fashion. Your wrong. Grammar. YOUR WRONG!

We are being watched. Whether it’s the grammar Nazi’s on the internet, the court of public opinion in the media, the government through our smart phones, the aliens from deep in the crust of the moons of Jupiter, or by God himself, we are being monitored. The pressure to ‘get it right’ is tremendous! RIGHT?

At 19 years of age Phil’s brother Andrew was left in a coma for 5 weeks following a severe car accident. This is the story of the faith, the pain, the love and the reality of the limits in medical science the Nichol family came to experience.

Your Wrong questions the nature of understanding and explores our modern day need to be 100% right about everything even it means regurgitating misinformation, believing the unbelievable or just plain lying.

Your Wrong wants you to gently question your beliefs or at least look at how you came to hold them in the first place.

Your Wrong wants to make you laugh and think in equal measure. And you’ll laugh a lot.

Phil Nichol was recently seen on TV in Catastrophe (C4), Uncle (BBC), Man Down (C4),  Siblings (BBC3) and playing Terry Gilliam in BBC4‘s BAFTA nominated Holy Flying Circus.

He has starred alongside Christian Slater in One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Boy George in Taboo and Bill Bailey in the fringe hit Twelve Angry Men.

He has won numerous performance awards including the 2005 Stage Award for Acting Excellence (The Zoo Story), the 2006 Edinburgh Comedy Award (The Naked Racist) and most recently a Scotsman Fringe First for the monologue Somewhere Beneath It All, A Small Fire Burns Still (2011).

“…beautifully crafted…a show that makes you laugh and think while you are watching, and then wakes you up in the night to laugh and think again.”                                                             THE SCOTSMAN *****

 

“…the sheer energy he exudes in the forceful, sweat-drenched performance pumps life into any audience.”                                                                                                                CHORTLE ****

“.. not just comedy but soul-quenching storytelling at its finest.” EDINBURGH FESTIVAL MAGAZINE  ***** 

 

“..Phil’s unique show sizzles with energy and passion… a thrilling hour of hilarity which has a real heavy metal thunder about it, a sound that is unique.”                                                              NEW EUROPEAN ***** 

 

“…a masterful mea culpa. Underpinning the set is a revelation so honest it’ll stop you in your tracks. But this is a spoiler-free zone. It’s Phil’s confessional and he tells it incredibly well.”               THE HERALD ****

 

 “a well constructed show, which weaves in politics and religion seamlessly, while providing a much-needed tenderness to an intense hour.”                                                                           THE SKINNY ****

 

“…a sweaty, high-octane hour filled with vitriolic diatribes against modern society, religion and any other number of targets – but with a more caring, inclusive message at its centre             THE WEE REVIEW ****

 

“…an enthralling performance …As always the writing and performance is top notch, the theatrics are there and his personality and charisma fill the performance space to bursting point. Don’t miss this show. If you do, then your wrong.”                                                                                               ONE4REVIEW ****
