Nik Coppin - Mixed Racist

I'm sure I've mentioned before that Nik is my mate so this isn't a review as such, but I saw his show today, so I thought I'd blog about it.

Over the years he's done some interesting material on race, from the unique perspective of being mixed race himself...

He's had a few overly PC people objecting to him discussing these matters, see my 2011 blog for evidence of this, but nothing compared to his run in with a radio DJ in Australia just over a year ago.

You can go and search the story on-line and get an idea of what happened, but it's much more fun to hear it from the man himself at 6.30pm daily in the Three Sisters.

I've seen his show so many times that I could probably tell you most of his jokes, but he's got some great new material this time around and at today's show the audience (mostly dragged in by me because Nik was too lazy to flyer) were very receptive to his show and really enjoyed it. The whole room warmed to him.

He's one of the most experienced comics at the Fringe that is still free and I reckon the style of the show, which is a full hour long story rather than a collection of routines will suit the fussy reviewers who want something more than just funny gags!

Go see him!
