Nicola (or Nicky, as she's known on the comedy circuit) Wilkinson is an actress and comedian. She trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and went on to take up acting professionally. Always having had a passion for comedy and a flair for comic roles, over the years she has been involved in sketch and improvisational comedy, alongside a vast array of more traditional acting roles.
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!

“Following in the hallowed tradition of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean” (Broadway Baby), The Kagools is an eponymously named physical comedy show featuring two silent and strange, but friendly, characters.
