Nick Page, semi-finalist in this year's Britain's Got Talent, has been a Bath Comedy favourite for many years.

Earlier this year Cheltenham-born Nick, who classifies himself as ‘educated scum' discovered that his Wikipedia entry had been deleted because he was 'no longer notable' (he had previously been listed as a stand up, writer, and presenter of BBC's Escape to the country…) He thinks this is caused by his refusal to engage with the industry beyond turning up, making audiences laugh and then going home to tinker with lawnmowers!

Nick's unique style of writing and delivery enables him to link things as diverse as police detention in Indonesia, a manifesto for a better world, planning permission, pizza ovens, the world's worst dog and bovine artificial insemination so that they make sense. From failure to failure via a suicide attempt and some more failure, Page is still winning, even if he's still not in Wikipedia!

Recently Nick was awarded the Operational Service Medal after numerous tours in active warzones performing for military (shows varied from main base shows to 12000 down to patrol base gigs for 20. He is currently developing a sitcom about his time in the car trade, which was exactly as villainous and chaotic as you would think! He previously lost a publishing deal for a book about the equestrian world after litigation from his ex wife! He has a degree in International Politics and far Eastern History (useful!). His many other jobs include working as a bouncer, a parliamentary researcher and estate agent, before doing his first gig at 31 for a bet.

With support from Anna Kierle

Award winning Anna Keirle counts Russell Brand among her fans. one of her biggest achievements is winning the weakest link , the other is surviving a childhood of mohair jumpers.
"Daffy Cornish bumpkin Keirle has funny in her veins, with a disarming daftness and an endearingly babbling manner...a comedy star" - Chortle
