One of the undeniable highlights of the NZ International Comedy Festival. A must-see show worth every star. ★★★★★
Within minutes of Phil Nichol walking on-stage I knew that his show ‘Your Wrong’ would be something different. Very different as it turns out.
Before going any further, I feel that it’s important to note that matter how many reviews you read about Phil Nichol, you’ll never truly be prepared for watching him live.
The critically acclaimed Canadian (or Brit depending on who you talk to) is known for his high-energy and sweat drenched performances. I knew enough to expect that the comic would bounce around The Classic with manic energy, I knew that his jokes would be delivered at break-neck speed, and I knew to expect the unexpected.
What I didn’t know to expect is how deeply moving and personal his show, ‘Your Wrong‘ would be. It was raw, it was relatable, it was affecting – all while being side-splittingly funny. I laughed so hard that it actually hurt (admittedly, now that I’m in my thirties a lot of things now hurt).
