5 Things you might not know about - Nick Doody
- Brian Donaldson
- 24 April 2008
- Nick Doody’s debut Fringe show in 2006, Before He Kills Again, kicked off with a disturbing song about clowns. So disturbing that the imagery cannot be repeated in a family publication.
- He shares a house with fellow stand-up Matt Kirshen.
- Noam Chomsky is Doody’s favourite author.
- In 2001, Doody wrote Tell Me the Truth, Laughing: The Life and Works of Bill Hicks.
- At Hicks’ request, student Doody was asked to support the US legend on the UK tour which proved to be his final hurrah. Doody’s rages against religious fundamentalism and anti-boozers is defiantly Hicksian. The Galway List even described him as ‘the new Denis Leary’.
