Nathan Virica-James



Northwest-based. Probably the second most famous comedian from Harrogate behind Maisie Adam. Admittedly, I can't think of any others off the top of my head.

Formerly a musician of 15 years. Then I hit 30, realised I couldn't be arsed anymore & decided to do comedy instead.

The comedy equivalent of Elvis Presley's last bowel movement; morbid, horrible, difficult to sit through, darkly hilarious and performed by a great artist.
