Born in Scotland and raised in Canada, Phil Nichol takes to the Fringe as if it's the mothership calling him home. Ever since he ventured to the capital in 1994 and received his first Perrier nomination as part of the legendary Corky and The Juice Pigs (composers of the immortal Only Gay Eskimo ) Phil has never been one for a low-key August. A genuine Fringe institution, Phil's tireless stand-up and stage contributions resulted in him being awarded a Spirit of The Fringe Award in 2005.

Phil's career has never been short of garlands; he won the 1998 TimeOut Comedy Award and his 2002 solo Fringe show Things I Like, I Lick earned him a second Perrier nomination. And who else could they have awarded 2006's inaugural if.comeddies Award (successor to the Perrier) to than the ‘thermonuclear' Mr Nichol?

Phil's ‘straight' acting career has proved equally fruitful. In 2005 The Stage named him Best Actor for his performance in Edward Albee's Zoo Story and he has performed alongside Christian Slater in the acclaimed production of One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest. Stewart Lee directed him in his 2006 production of Talk Radio (where he was again nominated by The Stage for Best Actor) and Phil also took to the West End Stage in Boy George's hit musical Taboo.

Phil is also fast becoming a familiar TV face, with performances as the camper-than-thou entertainment host in BBC's hit comedy Broken News and as Rob Brydon's agent in Annually Retentive.
