Dan Nicholas, known for his alternative quirky stand up, presents his debut solo show; a surreal anti-love story between a blow up crocodile and a mannequin, told in reverse, Which managed to pick up a nomination for ‘Best Festival Debut’ in the Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival awards earlier this year.

The show follows the lives of Terrance and Julia, as they fall in love, get married, and start to face the harshness of the realities of settling down at an early age. As time goes on the monotony of modern life starts to take hold, with Terrance turning to pursuing his dream of becoming a semi-pro ukulele player, leaving Julia starting to question where his priorities really lie.

In describing the show Dan said, ‘It’s interesting I think Reverb is a story that everyone can relate to their own experiences, on the surface it’s quite surreal and daft, but it’s much more than that. I think Reverb tests what comedy can be, it’s not stand up, but it’s not quite story telling or theatre either, it sits somewhere in between.’

Someone as inventive as this should have a future in comedy.’- Steve Bennett, Chortle

Dan Nicholas is a Leicester based comedian, and has been writing and performing comedy for over 4 years. In that time he’s picked up numerous awards such as the Nottingham Comedy Festival ‘Best Newcomer’ in 2013, and has been shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy award. Since then he’s gone from strength to strength; placing as runner up in the Breakthrough category in the Midlands Comedy awards (2014), toured with his interdisciplinary chat show Conversation Garden, and more recently picked up the nomination for his debut solo show at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival.
