JAMES MCNICHOLAS
Representing Agent: Becky Williams
Roles: Actor, Comedian
BIOGRAPHY:
Ever since he first saw Lawrence Olivier's awe-inspiring performance in Richard III, James knew exactly what he wanted to be: King. Unfortunately, it turns out that's quite complicated, so he's had to settle for being an actor, writer and comedian instead.

A graduate of the Central School of Speech & Drama, James has appeared in productions at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Mernier Chocolate Factory and Old Vic Tunnels. He has appeared in other factories and tunnels too, primarily as a labourer.

These days, James accounts for the bespectacled third of sketch group BEASTS. Following two consecutive sell-out Edinburgh shows, in 2014 the trio returned to score the hat-trick at the Pleasance Courtyard. Arguably their be(a)st show thus far, SOLO, directed by Foster's nominated director, Tom Parry (Pappy's), was another feast of critically acclaimed sillyness. A nomination for the Amused Moose Laughter Award plus the title of ‘5th Best-Reviewed Show of the Fringe’ and a Soho Theatre run were their hearty rewards.

BEASTS have also appeared on R4’s Sketchorama and an online sketch they filmed about the creation of Sonic The Hedgehog has racked up over 90,000 views on youtube. The boys are currently developing ideas for TV and radio so watch out mortals, they’re coming to get you.
