Finalist New Act of the Year 2013 (competition ongoing)
Nicky Wilkinson is an actress, stand-up comedian, improviser and sketch performer.
Having made her first forays into stand-up comedy as a resident compere at the award-winning Funny Side Comedy clubs, she’s now gigging all over the country as an act in her own right.
A bright and quick-witted Hullonian, her warm, likeable, down-to-earth style instantly puts audiences at ease; as ready and eager to laugh as they would be sharing a great joke with a friend. Her comedy mixes charming, real-life anecdotes with just the right dose of self-deprecation and often brilliantly funny improvised riffs with the crowd.
Nicky’s impressive stage presence, great comic timing and considerable comedy performance experience are ensuring she’s moving quickly through the stand-up comedy ranks, definitely making her one to watch!
In addition to her solo work, she’s also one half of comedy double-act Wilkinson Ford which performed its debut show ‘The Gherkin Fantasies’ in 2011 Edinburgh Festival and is currently contributing to a BBC comedy pilot.
