Nick Capper Pig In The City

Nick Capper Pig In The City

Nick Capper is one of the only agricultural-based comedians in Australia or the world. He's also one of Australia's oldest comedians. Arriving here on the first fleet Nick opened Australia's first comedy club in 1788 entertaining mostly ship folk, stonemasons and sheep dogs. His best act was called Ratboy McGee, an emu that did great impressions of Captain Cook and the botanist Sir Joseph Banks.

After releasing his first comedy special on pianola, Ratboy was tragically killed in a knife accident, but Nick Capper lives on doing comedy over 200 years later!

You can't match talent with this many years of experience.

Nick Capper is the sort of comedian who is comfortable in chaos. But don’t be fooled – he may have you on the edge of your seat wondering if he knows what he’s doing, but as a comedian who has been in the game for almost ten years, that loose, laid back, flying by the seat of your pants style is all part of the game.

Nick also sold out his entire Melbourne International Comedy Festival run in 2018. 

'Nick Capper is the real deal. He has funny bones and a wild imagination that spins amazing stories.' Anne Edmonds

'He creates a peculiar take on reality that has quirky appeal and images you’ll remember.' Chortle (UK)
