Since starting stand-up comedy in 2007, the talented and enthusiastic Nick Helm quickly gained attention from across the industry for his unique, powerful and above all hilarious blend of one-liners, stories, poems and songs.

2017 has been another exciting and busy year for Nick. It kicked off with the final series of Uncle being broadcast on BBC Three. Nick then went on to star as Watto in Channel 4’s Loaded, which was later broadcast on AMC. Nick also filmed and starred in his own food travelogue show, Eat Your Heart Out with Nick Helm, which launched on Dave on 24th August to critical acclaim. In the summer, he took a work in progress of his latest show to the Edinburgh Fringe, where he performed at the Pleasance Theatre. His new 25 date tour, There Is Nothing You Can Do To Me That I Haven’t Already Done To Myself, kicked off in September.

2016 is the year of the nominations, Nick has been BAFTA nominated for his short film Elephant, nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for his performance in BBC’s Uncle, and nominated for a Broadcast Digital Award for Best Scripted Short (Elephant). Additionally, Nick released a new successful album Nick Helm Is F*cking Amazing (available on iTunes and Bandcamp now) and released it on the world at a large album launch at The O2 Forum in Spring 2016.

2015 saw Uncle season 2 air on BBC Three from 10th February 2015. Nick also directed, starred in and co-wrote Elephant; a BBC online short film as part of the Funny Valentines series. The short was so successful that BBC extended its availability online and it was subsequently selected to be screened at BFI’s London Film Festival 2015. The Girl In The Dress, a short starring Nick, was also selected by BFI for the 2015 London Film Festival. In May of 2015 Nick guest appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown  (Channel 4). Nick’s first solo series Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment first aired on May 5th 2015 (BBC Three) and has been well received. Nick also starred in Susan Calman’s Sisters for BBC Radio 4 alongside Ashley Jensen, which aired in August 2015. Nick has also started his year with winning Best Music and Variety Artist with the Chortle Awards.

Nick Helm and Esther Smith’s short film – Elephant – was chosen to be screened at BFI’s London Film Festival and Bristol’s Encounters Film Festival. Elephant has since been BAFTA nominated (2016). In addition, The Girl In The Dress, a short film starring Nick was chosen to be in BFI’s London Film Festival as part of their London Calling category.

2015 also saw the start of Helm’s Angels, a limited run of comedy evenings in partnership with Glorious Management. Helm’s Angels was a monthly evening in London’s Soho and was a complete sell-out success. Nick also took his first tour show across the UK which was another success!

2014 was a busy year for Nick. Uncle was re-commissioned and filmed, Nick’s own show, Heavy Entertainment, was recorded in the summer. He won the South Bank Sky Arts Awards – The Times Breakthrough Award 2014 and the Best Breakthrough Act with the British Comedy Awards. Nick topped his year off with a two week run at Soho Theatre over the Christmas period.

2013 was an incredible year for Nick. Uncle was commissioned by the BBC and had a successful first series on BBC Three. His new album Hot ‘n’ Heavy was released on iTunes & CD via Discogs. He recorded the pilot of a new show, which was subsequently commissioned by BBC Three. The Nick Helm Pilot Spectacular aired on October 4th 2013. He regularly appeared on 8 Out Of 10 Cats. Finally, his show Nick Helm: One Man Mega Myth was taken to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was nominated for the prestigious 2013 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award.

2012 saw Nick’s third solo show, This Means War, perform a sell-out run in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Nick also recorded a pilot for BBC Radio 4 and starred in Uncle on Channel 4.

In 2011, Nick took his second hour show Dare To Dream, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where he was nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show and also filmed two episodes of new programme Show And Tell for E4.

In 2010, Nick headed up to Edinburgh in two shows. He was seen at The Big Value Early Show at Just the Tonic and also performed his solo show Keep Hold Of The Gold Downstairs at The Tron, which became one of the must-see shows of the festival, garnering huge attention from across the industry and rave reviews from the press.

Alongside his solo stand up, Nick was also half of the double act Helm & Taylor (with Paul F Taylor) and reached the final of the Laughing Horse Competition 2009. He was the creator of the innovative My First Gig: a live comedy night where stand ups dissect their first ever performances. My First Gig enjoyed a stint on Resonance 104.4 FM radio. Alongside all of this, Nick was also a regular contributor to the Fix Magazine as the Film Editor.
