Tony Law was made an offer he couldn't refuse and he didn't (it was to shoot a TV advert over 4 days that fell across his Paris dates) so I had to find a suitable replacement. Phil Nichol suggested Nick Wilty which was rather appropriate seeing that I've owed Nick a Paris show for over 15 years.
Back in 1995 (before I did the first show with Eddie Izzard) I saw Nick in the old Comedy Store in London and asked him whether he'd like to come and do a Paris show once I got things going. Being a more than well travelled man he was well up for it and I promised to make it happen. Well Nick did some more travelling and I did a whole bunch of comedy shows with just about every self-respecting stand-up in activity but never managed to get 'round to bringing Nick over to a city that I'm sure he knows like the back of a husky's paw. It was a circumstantial and circuitous route but finally we'll have Wilty won't we? And it will be well worth the wait.
