Tanyalee Davis & Phil Nichol
Coming to Hilarity Bites at Friends of Wine in Ripon on May 2nd 2017:
Standing at 3' 6" tall, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy - low to the ground and kind of racy. Canadian born, Tanyalee currently makes the stage her home while touring all over the world bringing the funny!
From January to June 2011, Tanyalee performed her very successful one-woman show called “Little Comedian, BIG Laughs” just off the Las Vegas strip, four nights a week for six months. Since then Tanyalee has gone on to support Frankie Boyle on his UK tour, star in numerous TV shows, and guest on The Last Leg.
2015 saw her UK Television prime-time debut when she appeared on BBC1’s The John Bishop Show, quickly followed by her amazing debut on BBC2's Live At The Apollo Christmas Special. Both of these dazzling performances saw her stock as a headline comic rise to even greater heights!
“Tanyalee Davis is simply one of the funniest people I know. She has a unique view of the world and if you haven't seen her I urge to go, sit back, relax and laugh” - John Bishop
“Joan Rivers meets a pile-driver” - The Scotsman
“A master of physical punctuation” - The Las Vegas Sun
Best Club Comic Nominee - 2017 Chortle Awards
Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner - 2006
Best Headliner Nominee - 2002, 2006 & 2010 Chortle Awards
Phil Nichol is a truly unique performer. An acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician, there is no end to his talent!
Phil is an energetic and exciting performer with an unquenchable thirst to break boundaries and innovate with his work. His skill as an improviser whether it be musical, comedy or straight is unparalleled. With a surreal edge to his mischievous rantings, Nichol always brings something new to the stage.
His keen sense of fun and eye for the shocking and absurd has cemented his position as one of the best comedians on the circuit today - shown clearly by his record-setting six nominations for the Chortle Awards' 'Best Headliner/Club Comic'. Phil's assured and award winning performances in his theatrical work have attracted critical accolades and see him in great demand as an actor.
“Seismically powerful award-winning comic force” - The Scotsman
“You could power a small market town from this performance” - The Times
“Nichol’s thermonuclear stage presence is so intense as to elude description. Give him any room and any crowd and he’ll win them over. He’s just outstandingly good at what he does” - The List
Silky has been a full time comedian since 1997. He did his first gig in 1994, and his fourth gig (the final of the 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards alongside Lee Mack, Daniel Kitson and Julian Barratt) was shown on BBC1’s Stand-Up Show. Other awards he has failed to win include the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year (prize-winning runner-up 2000), the Liverpool Echo Arts and Entertainment Award (the only person to be nominated twice: always the sodding bridesmaid).
Silky has performed internationally, including gigs in China, the Philippines, the Gulf, Singapore, the US, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and all over Europe, including at the Glastonbury Festival, where no-one lobbed bottles of wee, much to his relief. He performed at the 2004 God’s Kitchen Global Gathering, the 2005 Big Bang at Santa Pod, and in the houseband for the Kilkenny Festival. Silky is also a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, where he plays to full houses every year at The Stand Comedy Club.
