Hilarious comedy at The Met on the First Thursday of every month.

Featuring Phil Nichol, Nina Gilligan and MC Garrett Millerick.

Phil Nichol is something of a legend on the comedy circuit. He has won the ‘main comedy award at the Edinburgh Fringe (after two previous nominations) which is the comedy equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

Phil is an energetic and exciting performer with an unquenchable thirst to break boundaries and innovate with his work. His skill as an improviser whether it be musical, comedy or straight is unparalleled. With a surreal edge to some of his mischievous rantings Nichol always brings something new to the stage, his keen sense of fun and eye for the shocking and absurd has cemented his position as one of the best comedians on the circuit today.

“Riotously funny” Sunday Telegraph
“Cripplingly funny.” Three Weeks
“Unflappable, luminous talent” The List

After a decade of slogging away at the comedy coalface, Nina Gilligan joined the ranks of Vegas, Manford and Ranganathan when she was crowned the 2021 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year

Entertaining the metropolitan elites at London’s Soho theatre or the Edinburgh Fringe is one thing but keeping baying crowds of UK and US squaddies happy requires a slightly different skill set!

In fact, keeping them so happy you get asked back three times is the hallmark of a solid comic at the very top of their game and that sums up the wondrously monikered Garrett Millerick perfectly!

Co-host of hit podcast Laughable (alongside Jayde Adams and Red Richardson), Garrett has also performed his stand up on hit US talk show Conan as well as all the usual venues, tours and support slots to be expected from a comedian this good.

Acerbic yet delightful, grumpy but both hilarious and passionate. We really can’t recommend Garrett Millerick to you enough.

“The comic that other comics want to be. Brilliant.” ★★★★★ Three Weeks
“Wonderfully funny.” ★★★★ The Times
“A unique joy.” ★★★★ The List

Cumbria’s Tom Little takes the middle spot.

First Thursday Comedy at The Met is booked by Comedy In A Van.
