AdvertisementIn 2019, standup comedian Nick Schuller’s family home burned down in the Black Summer bushfires. Like all good comedians, Nick has monetised his trauma and turned his family’s tragedy into an hour of light entertainment.
Nick’s new show, ‘Fire Brand’ is coming to the Adelaide Fringe and tells the story of his attempts to capture the fading memories of his childhood home using only the unlikely collection of items that survived the blaze. This is a tale of Captain America, Canesten antifungal cream and some very overcooked chips.
A master of deadpan humour, Nick is as dry as the leaf litter that surrounded his family home. He was handpicked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to be part of the prestigious Comedy Zone in 2022 and is a two-time Raw Comedy State Finalist.
He has performed around the country and the world and has supported some of the biggest names in comedy including Tom Gleeson, Cal Wilson and Phil Wang.
