Portrait of Glynn Nicholas

Glynn Nicholas

Glynn is a director, comedian, guitarist, scriptwriter, songwriter and mime teacher. He is currently Chairman of Big hART - an award-winning Australian organisation, working to reengage marginalised communities and individuals through arts-based projects.

Glynn Nicholas began his career as a street performer travelling the world for a decade, winning international busking competitions in Europe and the USA - ‘making a fortune, and probably not paying tax’.

During the late 1980s he first emerged on Australian television episodes of Here’s Humphrey and in the early 1990s, shot to national fame when he appeared on the ABC’s television comedy series The Big Gig - where he created memorable characters like Pate Biscuit and Sergeant Smith.

Today, Glynn runs a successful production company which creates plays, musicals, television programs and entertainment for the corporate market. His smash hit Certified Male has played in seven countries, and will tour the UK as well as Australia later in 2012.

He is also president of the ‘Society for the Prevention of Kyle Sandilands’.
