Me, Bill Nighy and the Goblin – A one Woman comedy show written and performed by Nalika de Silva
There are two rules in life: “drink tea” says her carefree Sri Lankan father and “make lists” says her outspoken Yorkshire mother. Armed with this parental wisdom Nalika moves to London to ‘make it’, but reality hits when she ends up living with a violent squirrel.
Me, Bill Nighy and the Goblin is a comical coming of age tale from stand-up comedian and actress Nalika de Silva about what happens when big dreams are confronted with reality while trying to succeed in the acting world. With tales of resting jobs, squirrel attacks, Bollywood dancing and running into actor Bill Nighy, character actress Nalika de Silva shares her experience of moving from Yorkshire to London, bringing to life the funny, odd and frankly bizarre characters she meets along the way.
The show is directed by award winning Chicago-born stand-up comedian, Cynthia Levin, who has performed on Broadway and ABC TV. Named as “One to Watch” in the Hollywood Reporters Comedy issue she has performed in clubs throughout the US including: Caroline’s, The Comic Strip and Dangerfield’s in NYC.
Nalika will be doing her main preview at Hen and Chickens, Islington, London 3rd July.
