COMEDY KIKI: RHYS NICHOLSON

Queer Comedy Festival


Join us for the inaugural Darlinghurst Theatre Comedy Fest featuring camp comedians and the world premiere of a brand new cabaret show. We’ll be serving up high tea with drag bingo, cocktails and more.

Hello there. It’s me, Rhys, from comedy. Would you like to come to my show? I’m doing a one night only type situation for Mardi Gras. Why not, you know? It will be a fun mixture of jokes and stories I’ve told before from my last few shows as well as some brand new material from my upcoming tour. HOORAY! Either way it won’t be a disaster I don’t think. Why not come? Please come.

Queer Comedy Festival


Rhys Nicholson is an Australian person originally from Newcastle, New South Wales, now living in Sydney.

After moving to Sydney in 2009, Nicholson had limited success as a comedian until in 2012 he won the Time Out Award for Best Newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival. Since then Rhys has gone on to perform all over the world, including New York, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin’s Vodafone Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival and London’s classy SOHO Theatre.

In 2014 he was the co-host with Joel Creasey of ABCTV’s celebrated documentary GayCrashers. The documentary saw the duo traveling to the small town of Colac and performing a stand up show after Creasey had been involved in a homophobic attack on an earlier visit to the town.
