Underbelly: Cow Barn – 3rd– 27th August 2017
Australia’s acclaimed comedy super-nova is back with his sweet facial hair and a brand-new hour of kickass stand-up!
Returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August with, Nick Cody: On Fire, is a smouldering hour of stand-up so hot that not even Auld Reekie’s constant rainfall can dampen its’ spirits.
Nothing more, nothing less than superb stand-up comedy from the 30 year old who is already one of the most sought after live comedians around the globe. Gimmicks? Nope… simply hairlarious stories and jokes. His 2015 debut took Edinburgh by storm landing him in the Top 10 highest reviewed shows at – this will be Nick’s third Fringe and is the latest instalment in his already impressive body of work.
Nick has headlined sold-out comedy clubs all over the world including performing his solo shows at all the major Australian festivals over the last seven years and being invited to play at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival. He has also toured extensively around Australia and Asia as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow and Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase tours. As well as his own shows, Nick was chosen to support Jim Jefferies, Bill Burr and Anthony Jeselnik on their tours. If selling-out all over the world wasn’t enough, Nick has also been invited by the Australian Defence Force to perform for the troops in Afghanistan and has performed on board the HMAS Melbourne whilst it was at sea.
As well as his live projects, Nick has been storming into TV sets left, right and centre. He made his US late night television debut on Conan and became one of only a handful of Australians invited to perform on the US network Comedy Central. Back at home, Nick has starred in the smash-hit sketch show Kinne (7Mate) and guest starred on Josh Thomas’ award-winning comedy/drama Please Like Me (ABC2). His stand-up has been featured on the ARIA-nominated DVD Dave Hughes Is Handy (Roadshow Films), ABC2’s Comedy Up Late and Best Of The Sydney Comedy Fest and Just For Laughs Sydney on the Comedy Channel as well as the Melbourne Comedy Festival Opening Night Allstar Supershow (Channel 10).
Not content with just starring in other people’s shows, Nick has recorded two stand-up specials. His first Here’s Trouble at the Metro Theatre in Sydney and his second What Of It? at the Enmore Theatre.
