Nick Page got into comedy for a bet, he"s still not sure if he"s won. He turned professional 4 months after his first open mic appearance, helped by working with Steve Coogan"s "Baby Cow" production company and an approach from the BBC who needed someone with a knowledge of property and a bit of life for a new series. That offer turned into 3 series (so far) of "Escape to the Country", which attracts daytime audience share of over 30% and has moved to prime time as well.
Despite gaps in his gigging schedule caused by filming, Nick is performing all over the country, and is at home compering a rowdy Friday night comedy club as he is doing a one man show at a corporate event
His material is a surprising mixture of cynical observation and storytelling, drawing on his useless degree (International Politics and Far Eastern History) and inability to do a proper job (he was an estate agent but is mostly cured). He is quite tall, some would say very tall, but that may be hyperbole. His brother holds the record for throwing a Wellington boot (292 feet)
