Phil Nichol - The Naked Racist with his band The Shitsticks

This hardy perennial of comedy, who first came to notice in Corky and The Juice Pigs, staged one of his strongest shows for years and was duly rewarded with the inaugural if.comedy award. The Canadian comic has continued to win plaudits for both his comedy and for his acting and has appeared on TV shows from Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive to a special edition of The Weakest Link.
