  NICK WILTY
INCIDENT PRONE

TThe impossibly well-travelled Nick Wilty officially became a comedian in 1990, having amassed a store of anecdotal material to make the average stand-up weep with envy. A former soldier, shark fisherman and general magnet for the obscure and deranged, Nick soon found himself in huge demand as a performer across the world.

Despite engagements in Shanghai, Jakarta, Singapore, Brussels, Oslo, and Copenhagen, Nick found time to present for the BBC, interviewing the likes of Kylie Minogue and Dennis Hopper.

In 2000, Nick fronted the Channel 4 documentary The Other Side , which followed his tour of New Zealand with Eddie Izzard. Other TV appearances include Live At Jongleurs and The Comedy Store and most recently he joined Armando Iannucci for three out of four episodes of the Channel 4's new topical show Gash .

2007 sees Nick being named as one of the 50 cult (not a spelling mistake) comedians in Julian Hall's The Rough Guide to British Cult Comedy and the publication of his debut book Shooting on Location , which is absolutely not suitable for children or Margaret Thatcher .

In addition to his much anticipated solo show at The Stand, this Fringe Nick will also be directed by Phil Nichol in the play Breaker Morant and appear as part of a double act with self-appointed German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn.
