Phil Nichol is a Canadian comedian, singer-songwriter and actor. Born in Scotland, but raised in North America, he first found fame as a member of the musical comedy trio Corky and the Juice Pigs.
As an actor, one of his most prominent roles was as Philip Salon in Boy George's musical, Taboo, which was shown in the West End of London.
His stand-up routines often include musical elements, with Nichol performing songs on his acoustic guitar, in which he is sometimes accompanied by a band. He is perhaps best known for the song "The Only Gay Eskimo (In My Tribe)". In 2002, his Edinburgh Fringe Festival show Things I Like I Lick was nominated for the Perrier Award and in 2006 he won the if.comeddie, successor to the Perrier Award, with a show entitled The Naked Racist which he has performed at The Stand comedy club and later at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. In 2007, he was nominated for a Chortle Award.
Now resident in the United Kingdom, he is finding more time for 'straight' theatre work, as well as stand-up comedy.
On 23 September 2007, he was a last minute replacement for the charity show "A Seriously Funny Attempt To Get The Serious Fraud Office In The Dock." He hosted the second half of the gig.
