Nick Elleray has lived his life admiring the Rolling Stones and attempting to use spirituality to become a more tranquil individual. For a man who delivers such a composed performance, you can sense the inner rage that still hasn’t depleted in Elleray. The Aussie comedian has spent years reeling after the Stones’ 1989 release ‘Steel Wheels’, and considers whether you can ever really forgive your favourite band for their poorest effort. He puts on a cracking display in ‘Big Nick Energy’, questioning whether he still has the vigour that the title suggests. Comedically, he certainly does, as proved by this competent and unique display, advising us on how to impede a possible midlife crisis through observational humour. Click Here

August 9, 2019  ShortCom
“If the show isn’t good, at least you get to sit down for 45 minutes” is a brave way to start a stand up comedy show. But, luckily Nick Elleray doesn’t have to worry about handing in a poor performance as his relaxed storytelling transcends the usual stand up fare. Detailing his life in vivid, and hilarious detail about his overtly masculine childhood, Rolling Stones obsession, and foibles as he traverses modern living. Click Here

“Life wasn’t meant to be easy”, Nick Elleray quotes from his favoured Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser which immediately sets the tone for what to expect.

Big Nick Energy starts humbly – Elleray setting up his own mic in the attic of the Counting House. No glamorous entrance. No booming voice introducing performer to stage. It wasn’t necessary as Elleray is the average Joe who’s ready to make you laugh at the world.

A practitioner of meditation, Elleray’s show is an invitation to his own self-assessment. He delves into analysing the negative aspect of himself: anger issues, restricting masculinity, and his disappointment in his beloved Rolling Stones. Elleray represents a man of his era who struggles to get his head around modern-day life.

But the show is far from doom and gloom. Elleray is a positive pessimist that takes life in his stride. Using himself as a catalyst, the show gives its audience the ability to laugh at societal pressures – even if just for this moment. Big Nick Energy is a brilliant blend of jokes observing the good and bad sides people can possess, all while Elleray effortlessly flows through the set. Even if life wasn’t meant to be easy as Fraser suggests, Elleray sure makes it more bearable. Click Here
