[COMEDY/Stand Up ~ SA PREMIERE]
Le Cascadeur at The Garden Of Unearthly Delights, Wed 26 Feb.
Starting out as an actor then exploding onto the comedy scene in 2011, Sydney based Nikki Britton has kept splitting the sides of her audiences ever since, be it on television, radio or on the stage with her breathlessly seamless comedy. Nikki also has a long history in children’s entertainment, not only on the stage but playing the all important role in cheering up sick children as Captain Starlight with the Starlight Children’s Foundation for last 6 years.
For this year’s Adelaide Fringe, Nikki brings her brand new production One Small Step to The Garden Of Unearthly Delights. After an Aboriginal message in native tongue plays over the loudspeaker to open the show, out comes Nikki with a blower vac. Gaining assistance from an audience member, the blower vac is pointed at Nikki blowing her hair around to replicate the look of an absolute Rockstar! In order to tie her hair after being ‘blown on’, Nikki placed the microphone between her legs. Ooh, what does that look like?
Nikki is still single, but how you might ask? Well there’s no chance she’ll get on a dating apps when all men really reveal on their profiles is a hairy meat chandelier hanging in front of a butthole! Contrary to popular belief guys, us girls just hate looking at them when all they look like is shrivelled up, new found sea creatures.
Apart from smooth sailing when booking her holiday, Nikki’s solo trip to Europe did not quite go as planned. Initially excitement and a subconscious that does not shut up, never let Nikki get any rest for the extremely early 3am flight. Things continued to tumble from then on, including Nikki, out of the train at her final destination after a lengthy 40-odd-hour commute. Other passengers were just as keen to alight and start their journeys, so much so, Nikki was rushed off the train resulting her valuables being strewn all over the place and an awfully painful bruised ankle.
An Italian doctor with a cigarette in his mouth, told Nikki she was stupid, her ankle was okay, she just needed to rest it. Needless to say, the rest of the trip at the ‘honeymooner’s hotel’ was pretty uneventful, mostly sitting on a bench chatting with a new found friend daily. Although paper thin walls leave a lot to be desired, Nikki wasn’t the only one with a leg up; apparently Mick was having a fantastic honeymoon…
Following the European trip, Nikki proceeded to the UK where she was contracted to work at the children’s hospital. Some colleagues suggested an MRI scan on her ankle, and do you know what?! That Italian ‘doctor’ is stupid one! It turns out Nikki had 2 broken bones, the ligaments were moved from her ankle and there was a possibility of her bone popping out as the bone marrow was swollen (who knew that could happen?).
The bountiful array of hilarity continued throughout Nikki’s performance. One Small Step is a hysterically quick witted show that tickled the ribs of every audience member for the entire hour! A definite must see at this years Adelaide fringe, and great belly-laugh to boot.
NIKKI BRITTON – ONE SMALL STEP continues at Le Cascadeur at The Garden Of Unearthly Delights from 8:15pm until Sun 1 Mar.
