Nick will be taking his history comedy show SPENCER to the Underbelly for the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe:
‘I am murdered!’ 11th May 1812. The Prime Minister has just been killed by a mysterious stranger. Parliament is in uproar. There is anarchy in the UK. But who’s really behind this?
Spencer Percival has one claim to fame; he’s the only Prime Minister ever to be assassinated. Unfortunately no one’s ever heard of him. 205 years later, Nick Hall tells his story at the Plymouth Fringe. In this inventive and hilarious journey through history, Nick brings alive the world of the 19th century, while drawing parallels with the present. In this discordant age of Brexit, Donald Trump, Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, could we still learn something from the past?
Nick will also be performing a solo stand-up show at the Free Fringe later that afternoon:
No man is an island. But Nick Hall might be a peninsula. Hilarious and inventive stand-up, as seen and heard on BBC2, BBC3, and BBC Radio4. 'Brilliant' (The Times). ‘Crackingly original’ **** (The List). ‘One not to miss’ **** (The Skinny).
Lastly Nick will be performing with improvised comedy group The Committee, also on the Free Fringe:
London's hottest improv group, The Committee, bring their hilarious and inventive show to the Edinburgh Fringe. All of it made up on the spot by performers as seen on BBC1, Channel 4 and BBC Radio 4, and all created from one single word.
