Following a sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, Nick is performing his show 'Spencer' around the UK throughout 2018, as well as performing at various other gigs.
‘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?
Reviews Hub gave it four stars, "Hall delivers a history lesson, unlike anything you ever had...the witty and engaging delivery has echoes of the Horrid Histories series".
Nick also performs with long-form comedy improv group The Committee throughout 2018. All of it made up on the spot by performers as seen on BBC1, Channel 4 and BBC Radio 4. One of The Times' 'Top improv shows to see at Edinburgh'.
