Bad Gigs Episode 2 with Nick Rado
For my second episode, I sit down for a drink with multi-award winning writer, MC and stand-up comedian, Nick Rado! We chat about his beginnings on the UK comedy scene and a nightmarish blood soaked gig in Wales, then his move to NZ and an unbelievable gig mishap on a Red Nose Telethon! Not only do we talk about bad gigs, Nick unselfishly gives plenty of advice for rookie comics and MCs.Nick is a guest panellist and head writer of over 250 episodes for TV3's award-winning topical news comedy show 7 Days. Nick is the only comedian to win the NZ Comedy Guild Award for 'Best Comedy MC' five times; he is also the winner of Best Male Comedian NZ Comedy Guild Awards 2019. Rado was hand-selected to perform at the Sydney Opera House for the prestigious Just for Laughs Sydney showcase. He has opened for Rob Brydon, Aziz Ansari and Russell Howard on their nationwide tours. He was also featured in Rhys Darby's Sitcom Short Poppies on Netflix. As seen on, The Comedy Channel Australia, the Nightwatchmen and Narrow World of Sports for Fox Sports Australia and as heard on The Rock's Sporting Rumble.He also has his stand up special for sale.
