A stalwart comedian and an almost legend of the circuit, Nick Revell has been on the comedy scene for almost forty years, but this has not blunted his edge or his energy.
Now a Radio 4 series, BrokenDreamCatcher is a collection of surreal and satirical stories compiled from his last three years of critically acclaimed Edinburgh hours, featuring tales such as Clash of the Hipster Shamans, Treasure of the Illuminati Leprechauns and Vladimir Putin’s Bottom is Missing, which he takes on the road spring 2019.
Starting out as a writer for topical shows like Weekending and The News Huddlines (BBC Radio) and Not the Nine O’Clock News (BBC TV), Nick has gone on to be heard on numerous BBC Radio programmes including the award-winning Million Pound Radio Show (Radio 4), his own Radio 4 sit-com The Nick Revell Show and his own BBC1 TV series Nick Revell. He’s appeared on panel shows such as Just A Minute, The News Quiz and Quote Unquote and has written for various TV and radio sitcoms (Drop the Dead Donkey, Dressing for Breakfast, After You’d Gone, The Million Pound Radio Show, Miles Jupp’s In and Out of the Kitchen), sketch shows (Alas Smith and Jones, Three of a Kind) and material for other comedians (Dave Allen, Rory Bremner, Jasper Carrot), to name but a few.
He’s written two novels (House of the Spirit Levels and The Night of the Toxic Ostrich), a stage play (Love and Other Fairy Tales), and he’s been nominated for or won awards from the prestigious Perrier Award to the BAFTAS, Emmys and the Writers’ Guild Awards. He also teaches occasionally at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
