Dan Nicholas is a lot of things, some say he's a comedian, fewer say writer, sometimes 'Theatre Maker' springs to mind, definitely a Gemini though.

Daniel Nicholas, is an exciting interactive comedian, he has produced and created fun and interesting new ways to watch comedy. Whether that’s whilst playing lasertag, or with a dancer reacting to the set, Daniel by no means is a traditional stand up. Expect gags, expect audience participation, and expect something that you’ll never seen before or maybe again
In 2013, he was part of interdisciplinary chat show ‘Dan Nicholas’ Conversation Garden ´where he was joined by Dancer Lewys Holt,and Theatre maker Jack Britton, in a chat show where audience members were interviewed and put through challenges.
Conversation Garden had repeated success across the midlands, after a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and a small scale Autumn tour in 2014, the trio went on hiatus whilst they focused on their own projects.
Since then Daniel has developing projects that introduce an interdisciplinary element, combining different art forms with comedy. As a result Daniel has produced the event D.A.N.C.E (Developing a new Comedy Experience) and Commentary, the latter being set in an independent cinema,where live performance engages with film.
As a solo performer, Daniel tends to explore the different ways he can confuse and engage an audience at the same time, whether that’s through comedy or storytelling his performances are always of high quality and different to anything else, as he slowly carves his own path into these industries.
He is currently working on Eugene a comedy theatre sci-fi show (Think a ted talk meets the terminator with Steve Jobs and your on the right track) and Millennial Generation Game, a stand up comedy game show that explores different generations.
