Nicola (or Nicky, as she's known on the comedy circuit) Wilkinson is an actress and comedian. She trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and went on to take up acting professionally. Always having had a passion for comedy and a flair for comic roles, over the years she has been involved in sketch and improvisational comedy, alongside a vast array of more traditional acting roles.
Having made her first forays into stand-up comedy as a resident compere at the award-winning Funny Side Comedy clubs, she's now gigging all over the country as an act in her own right.
A bright and quick-witted Hullonian, her warm, likeable, down-to-earth style instantly puts audiences at ease; as ready and eager to laugh as they would be sharing a great joke with a friend. Her comedy mixes charming, real-life anecdotes with just the right dose of self-deprecation and often brilliantly funny improvised riffs with the crowd.
Nicky's impressive stage presence, great comic timing and considerable comedy performance experience are ensuring she's moving quickly through the stand-up comedy ranks, definitely making her one to watch!

Wilkinson Ford: Kagoolio
EDINBURGH FRINGE 2014

Just the Cask Room – Just the Tonic at The Mash House
Venue 288, 37 Guthrie Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1JG
Wilkinson Ford to première their new family friendly comedy show, Kagoolio, at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014.
Comedy duo, Wilkinson Ford, make a return to the Edinburgh Fringe; this time with a full length show as their silent comedy alter egos, The Kagools.
Their brand new physical comedy show, Kagoolio, transports audiences to a weird and weatherproofed world of interactive multimedia and audience participation, making this a wordless adventure through space and time.
Kagoolio is enchanting, bold, high-energy fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Of their debut full-length show as The Kagools, the double act said:
Claire Ford: The Kagools started as recurring characters in our regular sketch shows. We kept bringing them back as they proved really popular with audiences, people always wanted to see more of them.
Nicola Wilkinson: We also really loved playing them, so we’ve thought about a full-length show for a while now. We wanted to see where we could take them beyond a 10 minute sketch. It’s been so much fun developing this show, we’re really excited.
Claire Ford: It feels like a natural progression for us, and the great thing about The Kagools is that the comedy is universal. Whatever language you speak and however young or old you are, you can follow along and feel a part of the ridiculous mess The Kagools get themselves into.
ABOUT WILKINSON FORD:
Wilkinson Ford formed in 2011. Since then they've been tickling both online and live audiences with their unique brand of sketch and character comedy. Their spoof take on a Wilkinson Sword commercial attracted the attention of the BBC and won them a host of internet fans as far afield as Barbados! To date, they've staged three full-length shows; 'The Gherkin Fantasies', 'The Wilkinson Ford Variety Show' and ‘Wilkinson Ford: Webmasters’ all of which have combined pre-recorded footage and live performance to brilliant effect. ‘Wilkinson Ford: Kagoolio', uses the same compelling formula with an extra surprise twist. Both talented performers in their own right, Nicola Wilkinson (actress and stand-up comedian – Finalist in both New Act of the Year and So You Think You’re Funny 2013) and Claire Ford (comedy character actress and film-maker - Creator of internet sensation Terri Skyler of BBC Pilot ‘Fat Pipes’ fame) have amazing chemistry as a double-act.
