News: Edinburgh Fringe & UK Tour For Nick Helm

Following his return to the Edinburgh Fringe after six long years*,  Helm is back on tour from September 27 to remind the world of what they’ve been missing out on. Resurrected from the ashes, come and witness two-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and International Treasure in Waiting shake his ass, sing some songs and right some wrongs. You don’t deserve this... 

Nick Helm has been delighting audiences as a stand-up since 2007. Blending jokes, stories, poems and songs, he has earned an impressive list of awards and accolades such as Best Stand-Up Comedy Act at the What’s on London Awards, Chortle’s Best Music and Variety Artist, British Comedy Awards Best Breakthrough Artist, Times Breakthrough Award at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards,and many more. 

Nick’s talents go beyond stand-up, however, and he has become a familiar face on TV screens as the title role in BBC Three’s Uncle – which won Best Multichannel Programme at the 2015 Broadcast Awards. He also co-starred in Loaded (Channel 4), co-wrote, directed and starred in the BAFTA-nominated short Elephant (BBC Online), and starred in The Girl in the Dress – a short selected for the 2015 London Film Festival. A more recent comedy short, The Killing Machine, was written by and stars Nick, for the BBC.  He also created and starred in the food and travel show Eat Your Heart Out with Nick Helm (Dave).

In October last year, Nick was on our screens once again – in Sky One’s The Reluctant Landlord, written by and starring Romesh Ranganathan. Filming for series two is presently in progress. 

Nick is also a talented musician. He has released albums including Hot ‘n’ Heavy, Nick Helm is Fucking Amazing and Songs from Uncle, and is currently working on a soundtrack and his fourth album. He’s also appeared on numerous TV shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule (ITV1), Celebrity Mastermind (BBC1), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC Three), and Celebrity Storage Hunters (UKTV). Radio-wise, Nick’s featured in Susan Calman’s Sisters and Felicity Ward’s Appisodes (BBC Radio 4), as well as being the first comedian since Chris Morris to present his own Radio 1 comedy show, Nick Helm’s Christmas Spectacular, back in 2012 – and this led to his BBC Three series Heavy Entertainment. He currently hosts a weekly radio show and broadcast at Fubar Radio, with Nathaniel Metcalfe, entitled Nick & Nat’s Fan Club.

*As well as performing his new touring show at the Pleasance Dome, Nick Helm’s Musical B-Movie, Drive-In Horror Anthology Tribute I THINK, YOU STINK! has risen from the grave and is back at the Fringe for the first time since 2008. 

Originally performed at The Bedlam Theatre in 2008 and produced by The Space Theatre (located on the Isle of Dogs) with old school friends Adam Hemming and Robert Stott, ‘I Think, You Stink!’ was Helm’s last foray into theatre before he went full time as a stand up. Devised and created by Nick with lyrics by Helm and music by Nick, school friend George Mitton and his Uncle music collaborator Andy Jones

 ‘I Think, You Stink!’ has boasted several cast members over the years since it’s first incarnation including Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Bronté Barbé (Beautiful: The Carol King Musical) and musician and actor Joe DaCosta (Uncle, Cuckoo). 

Join the Master of Mayhem as he drags you kicking and screaming to the very depths of hell and back on this macabre journey where along the way you will bare witness to the horrifying tale of ‘Two Little Girls’, meet the ‘The Tesco Chain Store Manager’ and cower at the feet of Satan Himself in the ultimate 15 minute Rock Opera ‘Boyfriend From Hell'
