If you like your comedy dry and your comedians sly and your jokes wry, then this is for you.

Presenting his first full-length show, Australian Nick Elleray hilariously explores ageing, emotional repression and the cruel burden of having to pay the rent. Guest appearance by Kim Jong-Un*.

Nick Elleray is a classy act, turning the loud Aussie stereotype on its head with an aridly dry set delivered in quiet, measured style." - Steve Bennett, Chortle

"Very funny" - Bruce Dessau

* Appearance may only be verbal.'

News and Reviews for this Show

August 6, 2016  The Reviews Hub
You’ve all known him, guys. The quiet pal who keeps surprising you with a quirky one-liner, but plays it down; and doesn’t want to make too much of it, because that would be a bit of a fuss. Wandering around the flatlands of his middle years (no real “crisis” – that would be far too dramatic), musing diffidently on how strange it all is: this is Nick Elleray’s territory.

Australian – but no stereotype – Nick Elleray now sees himself in the afternoon of things at the office (too late to start on any major new task, too early to pack up for the day). He comes up wry when looking over the options open to him: the advantages of dead-end jobs, disappointing his mother when another girlfriend departs, wondering what next step to take in the internet dating minefield … He turns his amiable, quizzical eye on familiar middle-aged minutiae, providing easy company in his small venue, plugging into the everyday embarrassments he notices. No real belly laughs, for his is the humour of awkwardness and repression, but many smiles and nods of sympathetic recognition, even from younger members of the audience. Click Here
