The Clubhouse with Rhys Nicholson
Our shows often sell out - don't miss out on tickets.
The amazing Rhys Nicholson (RuPaul's Drag Race, The Imperfects, several Netflix specials) returns to our stage! Hosted by David Bakker, plus awesome supports.
Rhys Nicholson is a Multi-award winning Australian stand-up, writer, actor and collager.
With an enormous passion for live performing, their work continues to receive awards and accolades around the world. As well as numerous televised stand up performances in Australia, the UK and Canada, in early 2019 they were hand picked to open for comedy legend Conan O’Brien as he toured Australia. A few months later this lead to Nicholson’s USA television debut as the stand up guest on CONAN (TBS). 2019 proved to be quite a big year for Rhys (which is lucky because 2020 and 2021 have been a bit of a nightmare) when in November they recorded their third stand up special. This time for Netflix worldwide making them one of only three Australians with a solo show on the streaming giant.
Alongside a booming stand-up career, Nicholson is a favourite across our small screens. From panel shows to documentary and acting roles, they clearly don't like to sit still very much. Over the years Rhys has had a whole bunch of guest and supporting roles in a plethora of sitcoms across networks and countries. Most recently being cast as a series regular in the Netflix Sci-Fi comedy The Imperfects to be released in early 2022. Rhys was very excited about the fact they had a stunt double.
Not to let something like a devastating global health crisis from keeping them busy, the last couple years have seen Rhys continue to rise. For co-opening Melbourne’s newest live comedy venue, The Comedy Republic (he cannot recommend you do that during a pandemic), to numerous acting roles and now setting their talents writing a book of essays, Nicholson is focused on continuing to work and diversify in the comedy industry they love so much.
is a genuinely great stand-up comedian at work – in total command of their material and audience – and it’s awe-inspiring to watch"- ✭✭✭✭✭ -
“Nicholson is an astute satirist of the world around them. Clever, a bit below-the-belt... blatantly very funny” - ✭✭✭✭✭ - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
