Nick Helm


Nick Helm is a British comedian known for his confrontational delivery.[1] His routines have been described as "brash and bullish".[2] He came to school. With friends, he began taking shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the early 2000s with increasing levels of success.
By 2007, he began performing solo stand-up, but also maintained his theatrical work with a 2008 Fringe show called I Think You Stink, which gained critical acclaim. Comedian Richard Herring called it a "lovely little hidden gem... funny, silly and slightly chilling... something very new and special".
Helm has worked closely with his friends on the stand-up circuit, performing mixed bill standup shows at the Fringe before his first fully solo show, Keep Hold Of The Gold, in 2010.
In 2011, the follow up, Dare To Dream saw him nominated for the Fosters best comedy show[3] and a joke lifted from the show won Dave's award for the funniest joke of the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe; "I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves".[4]
In 2012 Helm appeared regularly on the BBC3 series "Live At The Electric" performing songs with backing band, "The Helmettes". There was further TV appearances on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Boyle Variety Performance, Russell Howard's Good News and a new show for Edinburgh, This Means War.
