Nico Yearwood

Nico Yearwood

Nico's laid back, easy going style means he is at home on stage both as an act and a highly sought after MC.


'Instinctive likeability and an appealing spark in his natural performance' - Steve Bennett – Chortle

He has travelled all over the world performing in shows from Scandinavia to Eastern Europe to Wetwang in Yorkshire.  Nico’s charisma gives him license to handle more controversial topics that other comedians might shy away from. His upbringing in Barbados allows him to present a unique and hilarious perspective on sensitive topics such as race, religion and gender, all the while with a glint in his eye that puts the audience at ease and laughing out loud. 

'One of the most natural comedians around at the moment, strong material and very likeable.' - Adam Bloom

Nico left Barbados in 2006 to study finance in the UK but soon realized his calling was not to be sat in a cubicle staring at spreadsheets.  Following a trip to a comedy club he decided to give it a go himself and he hasn’t looked back since.   'Nico's relaxed style and fluent delivery means he gets away with lines others could only dream of. Very funny' - Matt Hambly, FHM

Having rocketed through various new act competitions and fast becoming a regular presence on the London comedy circuit, Nico is now one of the regular MCs at institutions such as Top Secret Comedy Club and Angel Comedy.  He is the first Bajan to do paid spots at The Comedy Store and also gigs for The Glee Clubs, Up the Creek, Comedy Cellar, Crack Comedy, Camden Comedy Club, Jongleurs & Backyard Comedy Club.
