Her warm, lightning paced style won her the Quest for the Best competition and saw her recently nominated for Best Comedy at the Perth Fringeworld Festival with her most recent show Romanticide, which played to sold out houses and critical acclaim across the country during this year’s festival season. It was her fourth solo hour show. She has performed nationwide for the last 5 years with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow and Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase Tours and recently appeared on ABC’s Comedy Up Late. Nikki hosted Comedy Central’s Insert Venue for Fetch TV and is a sought after MC for cruises and comedy and corporate events for her charming effervescence that endears her to any audience. She starred as Grandma as part of ABC’s Stand and Deliver. She has also performed internationally at LA’s Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. She is a member of sketch comedy group, 5 Servings of Ham who premiered their show Tangara at The Sydney Comedy Festival in 2017.
