ABOUT NICOLE HENRIKSEN
Nicole (she/they pronouns) started doing stand up comedy in 2011 in Sydney, Australia, and created dense, subversive, high-energy solo comedy shows, which she toured around Australia and the UK. She then began creating theatre shows to more fully explore topics of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, mental health, and so much more.
As of 2017, Nicole has created, written, performed, directed, and produced seven full length solo shows. The newest is A Robot In Human Skin, which explores anxiety with honesty and whimsy.
