Rhys Nicholson

Rhys Nicholson 2019 Adelaide FringeNice People Nice Things Nice Situations. Adelaide Fringe. Masonic - Phoenix Room at Gluttony. 13 Mar 2019


In 'Nice People Nice Things Nice Situations', Rhys Nicholson muses over his impending thirties. Turning 29 is proving to be a reality check; age, domesticity, and 10-year reunions are catching up with him. Nicholson's fur baby is gas-lighting him and opinionated new shoulder hair has appeared out of nowhere. Parenthood looms, along with the anxiety of what kind of parent he might be.


These sound like serious topics, but fear not. Nicholson delivers a set of high- and low-brow musings with dry wit and a generous sprinkling of inappropriate anecdotes. He is endearingly awkward and largely rejects the perception that he is (or should be) an upstanding role model for the gay community, preferring instead to tell it like he sees it. It's all very refreshing and funny.  


Nicholson's style may not be for everyone, but I don't think he is bothered by this. Nor is this audience member, who laughs from start to finish. With just three more performances, do yourself a favour and join Nicholson in the Masonic Hall for a great night out.
