Nick was a semi-finalist in I.T.V.'s 'Britain's Got Talent' 2018 and won 'The English Comedian of the Year' 2017/2018 (having come second in 2016!) His prize was an all expenses trip to Australia to perform at the Perth and Adelaide festivals.(where he performed up to 10 shows a day for 2 months)
His debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. He is in enormous demand in comedy clubs throughout the UK, as a headline act and MC, and has been for the last 15 years.
He's definitely one of those people you shouldn't like but do. He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system, nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV, nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse!
Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit as long ago as 2004. It should be pointed out that at the time he was living with his Gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.Paul has since had a consecutive succession of sell out shows at The Glasgow Comedy Festival and joined esteemed popular comedy-improv group Dance Monkey Boy, Dance! (also featuring Raymond Mearns), and has helped with the development of the group. In 2006 ‘The Boys’ caught the attention of BBC Radio who recorded the show at the Glasgow Comedy Festival and since then, Dance Monkey Boy, Dance! have gone on to work under the watchful eye of the BBC to develop regular radio shows.
Magician Claire Lenahan displays great crowd work and is very engaging to watch. Claire sparkles with an energy and wit that could win over any audience.
Claire was a Leicester Square New Comedian of The Year Semi-Finalist in 2016 and a finalist at the 2017 New Act of The Year awards. She has a promising future ahead of her and is well known in the alternative comedy circuit. She performed her 2018 Fringe show “Loud & Louder” with her uncle Magician John Lenahan, described as “a stalwart of UK stage and TV for over three decades”. The show was very well received and cast Claire firmly in the eye of those involved in the industry.
Andy Fothergill and Nick Creed have put together more than 300 comedy shows. You may be suprised to find that they are still in their early thirties. (Sadly they're not.)
