Nicky Wilkinson - Beaver Cheeks
An ex-boyfriend from years ago once told Nicky Wilkinson that she looked like a cartoon beaver, and for some reason that off-hand comment has stuck with her. Why? She doesn’t like chewing down trees with her teeth, or building dams, and she definitely doesn’t live in a Lodge.
So now, rather than let that little jibe bother her, Nicky is owning it. Hell yeah! She’s got Beaver Cheeks baby, and she loves them. So what if she also has fat knees and odd shaped boobs?! She’s owning that too.
Nick has been a finalist in both the Edinburgh Fringe’s prestigious ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ Competition (the UK version of triple j’s RAW Comedy) and the New Acts of the Year (NATYS). In Beaver Cheeks she hilariously tackles the misconceptions and preconceptions about body image frankly and most importantly, with much hilarity.
Timing is everything in comedy and thankfully Nicky moved to Australia permanently in September 2019 to be with her Australian boyfriend and was a little surprised to discover that he’s a bit of a Bogan. Not a full-on Bogan. But a man with a ‘going out’ flanno.
Nicky has escaped the worst of the Pandemic and spent the lockdown in sunny Queensland. Whilst most of her UK comedian friends are going into their third lockdown, she’s about to spend a month performing at FRINGE WORLD.
With her effortless likeability and witty charm, the UK’s loss is definitely FRINGE WORLD’s gain and with Beaver Cheeks, we can expect Nicky Wilkinson to wedge her somewhat wonky toes firmly in the door of the Australian comedy scene.
