Nick Helm

NOMINEE LEICESTER COMEDY FESTIVAL BEST SHOW 2011
NOMINEE CHORTLE BEST BREAKTHROUGH ACT 2011
DAVE’S TOP 10 STAND-UPS TO CATCH IN 2011

Since starting stand-up comedy in 2007, the talented and enthusiastic Nick Helm is quickly gaining attention from across the industry for his unique, powerful and above all hilarious blend of one-liners, stories, poems and songs. In addition, he is also a strong, energetic compere.

In 2010, Nick headed up to Edinburgh in two shows. He was seen at the Big Value Early Show at Just the Tonic @ the Caves. He was also doing his second solo show ‘KEEP HOLD OF THE GOLD’ Downstairs at the Tron, which became one of the must-see shows of the festival, garnering huge attention from across the industry and rave reviews from the press. This year, Nick can be seen performing at the Glasgow Comedy Festival and will be taking a new show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Alongside his solo stand up, he is also half of the double act ‘Helm & Taylor’ (with our very own Paul F Taylor) and reached the final of the Laughing Horse Competition 2009.

He is the creator of the innovative ‘My First Gig’: a live comedy night where stand ups dissect their first ever performances. My First Gig has recently enjoyed a stint on Resonance 104.4 FM radio and has just been given a second series. Alongside all of this, Nick is also a regular contributor to the Fix Magazine as the Film Editor.

In 2001 Nick formed Bad Ash Productions and has since written, directed and performed in several plays under the Bad Ash name, as well as writing and performing in a couple of poetry and music shows in the Edinburgh festival.
