Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill's request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny? competition. In 2006, Nick performed his first solo Edinburgh Festival show, Before He Kills Again and since then, Nick has written and performed another 10 solo hours of stand-up, including 2014's Nick Doody vs the Debonair Assassin.
Since then he has performed all over the world, appeared on various radio and TV shows and is much in demand as a writer, penning jokes for Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage, Marcus Brigstocke and the late Joan Rivers. He's written for Have I Got News For You, 8 out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week and even for Dolly Parton. He was also the creator and head writer of Bigipedia, a critically acclaimed Radio 4 show that broadcast in 2009 and 2011.
