Nicole Harvey stars in her live one woman show “Delicious & Dateless” at Brighton Fringe Festival



Nicole Harvey made her Edinburgh debut with a short sell out run of her one-woman show in 2014,”keenly observed… witty social commentary” John Fleming.
The show material expands on the stories from her ongoing comedy webisodes.

Turning 40, Nicole wonders how living an adventurous, non-conformist life put her on the shelf?

A fusion of personal story, social commentary, and character comedy – with a hint of stand up – Nicole’s show takes us on a guided tour round the major landmarks of her dating history. Excruciating honesty from a smart, happy-in her-own-skin kinda lady who has been forced to re-strategise as her best friends all moved country, “moved to the country”, or disappeared into motherhood. She refuses to shop online for love,or swipe in any direction, and she still likes to tear up a dance floor, but finds herself bewildered – explaining to much, much younger acquaintances that maybe in porn it is normal that a first kiss means hair pulling, but errr?!? From inappropriate setups by pitying couples who have found the Holy Grail of Marriage to kitchen banishment by uncomfortable wives at dinner parties, Nicole constantly finds herself forced to apologise for enjoying childless freedom. She is certainly not a Bridget Jones and is far from a “man hater.” She is, however, definitely in culture shock! She misses good old-fashioned manners,loves to connect and talk like humans already, yet is forced to exist in this cybercentric, tinder-tastic, selfie-posing era. She wonders if her virtual self is having more fun than she is, and when did eye contact go so out of fashion?

“Delicious & Dateless” began in February 2014 as a monologue, which was well received in comedy circles:
“Sassy and gorgeously funny” – Anil Desai

The content readily lent itself to webisodes, so Nicole began production. Momentum grew and following the fun in Edinburgh 2014 she is excited to perform this solo show at the Brighton Fringe Festival. Nicole has trained and worked as an actress, on screen and stage, in London, Los Angeles, and Paris.
