Rhys Nicholson

Book for an event

Rhys Nicholson is a multi-award winning Australian comedian, writer, actor and presenter. Alongside a booming live and televised stand-up career – with performances in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and North America, and on Netflix – they are a favourite across our small screens too, from panel shows to documentary, acting roles (in the sci-fi comedy The Imperfects) and as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under. Hailed as ‘an astute satirist . . . clever and blatantly very funny’ by the Sydney Morning Herald, and ‘hilarious and uproariously catty’ by the Herald Sun, Rhys has opened for Conan O’Brien as he toured Australia, and is co-founder of Melbourne live comedy venue, The Comedy Republic.
