Nick Cody is making his highly anticipated Edinburgh Fringe debut. Nick's show, Beard Game Strong, is an hour of hilarious stand-up...and a kickass beard.
This past year 28-year old has become an internationally sought-after act. He has performed at the invite-only Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, filmed his debut stand-up special to a sold-out Metro Theatre in Sydney and was handpicked to support comedy superstars Bill Burr and Jim Jefferies around Australia.
2014 was a big year for Nick, as he starred in all six episodes of the smash-hit TV-sketch show Kinne on 7Mate and guest starred on Josh Thomas award-winning comedy drama Please Like Me on ABC2. While his stand-up has been featured on the ARIA-nominated DVD Dave Hughes Is Handy (Roadshow Films), ABC2's Comedy Up Late and Best Of The Sydney Comedy Fest on the Comedy Channel.
This follows an action packed 2013 when Nick became one of only a handful of Australians to be invited to perform stand-up on the US television network, Comedy Central. Later, Nick was invited by the Australian Defence Force to perform in Afghanistan for the troops.
He has played to sold-out crowds over the last five years at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his solo shows Here's Trouble (2014), Inappropriate (2013), Sinful Thinking (2012), Back To School (2012), It's Not You, It's Her (2011) and Lust Actually (2010). Nick has recently performed his solo shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Brisbane Comedy Festival, Perth Comedy Festival and Sydney Fringe Festival and to packed theatres on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow and the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tour.
In anticipation of Nick's Edinburgh debut you can listen to his popular weekly podcast, Something For The Drive Home, available on iTunes. Nick records the show with fellow comic Bart Freebairn and it has been described by Time Out as "pleasingly bite-sized slabs of rough as guts insanity".
