Nick Helm’s Twitter handle – Nick Fuckin’ Helm – instantly sets the tone for the St Albans comedian; no fluffy, family friendly comedy here then. The comic is known for his confrontational style, with varying degrees of ferocity being reached throughout his show. The musician and actor has done the rounds of the usual panel shows, but manages to stand out with his fury-filled diatribes and punk ditties – I Don’t Want To Work In Admin and He Makes You Look Fat being particularly raucous highlights.

Having recently been the recipient of his own BBC 3 show, Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment, which contained everything from songs, sketches and jokes, to poetry, fireworks and dancing, he’s now taking his show on the road, with a slew of dates across the North East as part of an extensive tour for the Masterworks In Progress show. As he puts it himself “see him now and boast to your friends in years to come about how you saw him in the early days, before he sold out, got shit and went commercial”.

Nick Helm performs at Seen, Darlington on Thursday 15th, ARC in Stockton on Wednesday 21st and The Witham, Barnard Castle on Thursday 22nd October.
