English Comedian of the Year 2018 and semi-finalist on Britain's Got Talent
With storytelling comics there's a moment where the audience asks themselves 'I wonder if that's true?'. With Nick there is more doubt, because the stories are so outlandish, and yet at the same time there's the sure knowledge that every story is true, and that his is a life lived laughing from disaster to disaster. Drawing on his useless degree (International Politics and Far Eastern History) and inability to do a proper job (he was an estate agent but is mostly cured). He is quite tall, some would say very tall, but that may be hyperbole. His brother holds the record for throwing a Wellington boot (292 feet).
Nick's comedy has taken him all over the world and his debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. As well as performing at bases across the UK, Nick has had 7 tours of Afghanistan, with shows at all main bases and many FOBs. Nick was awarded the Operational Service Medal for his comedy work in Afghanistan.
''A huge dose of likeability with some very clever material'' Bath Chronicle.
''The funniest thing I've seen all year'' Mitch Benn
''Managed to combine a ready wit with his extensive knowledge'' The Stage
''A very fine man'' Jo Whiley, Radio 1
The 2017 English Comedian of the Year finalist, Darius is a regular performer at all of the major UK comedy clubs and has also toured internationally. With a particular style akin to a performance poet or faith healer, Darius commands his audience with wonderful charisma – an American style comedian with British soul.
A distinct voice in a sea of ubiquity – Darius is fearless in his belief in what is funny and forging his own path. This is high energy, captivating stand up comedy fuelled with passion, soul and wit.
Darius is also the host and co-creator of the hit sell-out Edinburgh show, Hate 'n' Live along with fellow comedians Justin Panks and Leo Kearse.
