21:00 Monkey Barrel (Venue 515) Aug 2nd-26th
Heroes @ Monkey Barrel
Bunbury Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Even before some audience members had taken their seats, Phil Nichol makes it clear what kind of show this is going to be. In a warm and friendly manner, bouncing with energy, Nichol greets pretty much every audience member making sure they’re happy and comfortable. This already sets the show apart from others. From early on in the performance it is clear that Nichol is a born story teller, using highly descriptive language to paint hilarious and at times, poignant pictures in the eye of the beholder.
The audience is taken on a journey which is not only beautifully but passionately told and with masterful timing and pace.
Full of peculiar peeks and troughs, the show is a reflection of some of the most ridiculous, sometimes cringe worthy and occasionally outright bizarre situations that life has thrown at him. On the other hand, it is entirely relatable in that side splitting, head shaking way that, in parts of the show makes you think, I know exactly what you mean.
Nichol is the definition of charm and charisma with razor sharp wit and stage presence. This show has a definite feeling of the triumphant about it, packed with positive messages that leave you feeling really good.
Go to this show. It’s impossible not to absolutely love every second of it.
