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.
He’s definitely one of those people you shouldn’t like but do. He has an enviable gag rate, with each story and routine filled with set ups, call backs and devastating punchlines. His stories are unique, yet relate to everyone. Everyone has felt frustrated by the legal system, nobody else has tried to go to prison to prove a point. Everyone watches daytime TV, nobody else has been sacked from it for an incident involving a Russian call girl and an antique rocking horse.
Nick’s comedy has taken him all over the world, with performances in (wait for it) France, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Austria, Cyprus, Egypt, Turkey, Crete, China, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Afghanistan, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Spain, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, The Czech Republic, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Singapore, Vietnam, Bali, Indonesia, Malaysia and Russia.
Nick placed second at ‘The English Comedian of the Year’ 2016. His debut Edinburgh Festival show had sell-out performances, critical acclaim and a host of 4 star reviews. He is in enormous demand in comedy clubs throughout the UK, as a headline act and MC, and has been for the last 12 years.
As well as performing at bases across the UK, Nick has had 5 tours of Afghanistan, with shows at all main bases and many FOBs. He is the only comic to have performed for both CSE (the MOD’s entertainment contractor) and BFF (the troop welfare charity). In addition he was chosen to host the BIG SALUTE (forces’ radio’s gala event for 5 military charities), was compere for the first Akrotiri military family festival, and was headline comic for the Birmingham Military Hospital’s celebration event for over 1500 people.
He’s as comfortable performing to 3000 in an open air arena in camp Bastion as he is at a dinner for cavalry officers or pilots, and his style translates to both equally.
Last year he received the Operational Service Medal for his work in Afghanistan (This is only awarded to Troops and Contractors for working in the field of operations for repeated tours) and had the honour of being the last comic to perform for British Troops in Camp Bastion, and the First comic to perform at the International Military Academy at Qargha, where he received a letter of Commendation from the American General, and from the British and Allied Commanding Officer.

Josh is the son of legendary PR guru Lynne Franks, the woman who inspired Jennifer Saunders’ character Edina in Absolutely Fabulous. Raised as a Buddhist this ex-public schoolboy then trained as a Rabbi before being kicked off the programme for being caught with a naked (non-Jewish) girl. He started his own PR firm when he was just 16, received critical acclaim for writing and directing a short film for Channel 4, and has had a number of senior roles in music video production companies. And now he’s decided to settle down and get a proper job – as a stand-up comedian, which started in earnest with his first trip to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2003.
