Nick Elleray is a comic based in London. Originally from Australia, he lives in the UK due to a combination of inertia and an utter disinterest in sport.
“Nick Elleray is a classy act, turning the loud Aussie stereotype on its head with an aridly dry set delivered in quiet, measured style.” Steve Bennett, Chortle
“An impressive set… Elleray is an engaging stand-up with an inventive mind.”
Junior Simpson headlines at clubs across Britain as well as performing in South Africa and Australia on a regular basis.
He has performed at festivals all over the world including at the Reading Festival, Brighton Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
He has also had numerous television and radio appearances including Lily Savage’s Blankety Blank, Richard & Judy, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The 11 O’Clock Show as well as being a warm-up artist for many television shows including I’m Alan Partridge and Dead Ringers.
