Nick Revell - BrokenDreamCatcher


Nick Revell will be recording BrokenDreamCatcher, a series of surreal and satirical stories, for BBC Radio 4 in May 2018 at Downstairs At The King’s Head. And in July he will be previewing his new Edinburgh show, also called BrokenDreamCatcher, but with different stories. 


"This is a sort of Jackanory for grown-ups and it is great fun. Nick Revell’s stories are a fantastic device to do some satire, some politics, some observational humour and a load of silliness…Nick pretty much has the ‘surreal fiction for adults’ genre to himself and he is its master. I left thinking I wish they would put it on telly.” Kate Copstick, Scotsman


The stories, all autobiographical and 100% true (as defined by The 2018 International MSM and Social Media Definitions of Veracity Convention) will include Vladimir Putin’s Bottom Is Missing, Clash of The Hipster Shamans and Central Asia’s Most Brutal Dictators and Their Lovely Homes


"…as if JG Ballard has written an Edinburgh show from beyond the grave… profound and impressive and expertly delivered...” Chortle


"Nick Revell has done for magic realism what Austin Powers did for James Bond.” Times


'Stephen Carlin: The Opinionater.'

Here are all my opinions. You must hear them now before you die. Sit back, listen and try not to do yourself an injury.
