Manga PhilThe all-conquering Phil Nichol returns to The Stand for a hero's welcome.

Phil's back at The Stand Comedy Club in all his frenetic and very probably full-frontal glory.

Legendary for his freewheeling picaresque romps that are, frankly, confessional to the point of deranged, you may wonder what Phil still has left to explore. With potential homosexuality, nude bigots, jazz ballet and substance-fuelled lost weekends ticked off the checklist, what will Phil expose his audiences to in 2007?

One thing's for sure, Phil's all new show promises to be a jaw-dropping feat of high octane comedy that will leave you shocked, amazed and uplifted.

Sweaty, raucous and all-embracing, Mr Nichol will touch you, quite possibly literally. There's no fourth wall in Phil's comedy- he just wants to share the love.

2007 has already see Phil take his critically acclaimed Fringe show The Naked Racist on his first major UK tour, where it played to packed houses, including a sell-out run at London's Soho Theatre.

As per, it's a hectic Fringe for Phil. This year, he will be directing Breaker Morant and starring in Killer Joe, both for his own company The Comedians Theatre Company. But The Stand is the only place in Edinburgh to catch Phil performing his brand new solo stand-up show. Seeing Phil in action is seeing comedy at its livest- make sure you don't miss your chance to experience an audience with the freewheeling, mind-bogglingly funny genius.

Oh, and last year his show at The Stand won a little something that took over from the Perrier- the inaugural if.comeddies Award for best comedy.

Press Quotes

'This is comedy at its most eye-popping, synapse-fizzing, moral majority baiting manic'
'You could power a small market from this performance... A brilliant sustained stand-up masterclass'
