A dead pan poet sings quiet songs quietly
Phil Nichol is Bobby Spade
Over the last 10 years Phil Nichol has become an Edinburgh Festival legend with a series astounding solo shows as well as numerous appearances in plays, showcases and Late Shows which have established him as a truly unique performer. An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician.
He won the Fringe Award for "Best Show" at the 2006 Fringe for his show "The Naked Racist"�which followed up his equally acclaimed show "Nearly Gay". Both of these shows made a huge impression on New Zealand audiences with sellout seasons at The Classic in the NZ International Comedy Festival.
In August 2009 Phil continued his string of successes at the Edinburgh Fringe with his latest creation , Bobby Spade "�A Dead Pan Poet Sings Quiet Songs Quietly". Once again he had both his legion of fans and his critics guessing what was coming next.
