Resurrected from the ashes, come and witness two time Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee and International-Treasure-In-Waiting shaking his ass, singing songs and righting 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 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 2018, Nick was on our screens once again – in Sky One’s The Reluctant Landlord,written by and starring Romesh Ranganathan. Series two was aired in autumn 2019.
Nick is also a talented musician. He has released albums including Hot ‘n’ Heavy, Nick Helm is F**king 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.

"Pretty f*cking amazing. A true comedy daredevil"

Time Out

"The man is brutal, but by AC/DC he's talented with it."

Comedy with a side order of rage from a man who bestrides the stage like a perspiring colossus"

Evening Standard

"Rambunctious, artfully overblown, a hairball of grotty triumphalism... he has found a way to merge his extreme blusterand his extreme vulnerability"

The Times

"Helm takes a step away from his burly and brutal onstage persona to discuss more serious issues, including his own mental health and experiences with anxiety, self-loathing and different types of anti-depressants"
