Barbara Nice — a caricature of a middle agedhousewife and mother of five from Kings Heath, Birmingham. Her act is heavily reliant on interaction with the audience, for example acting as an agony aunt to the audience. She performs on the comedy circuit as a headline act and has performed one woman shows across the UK. She appeared as Barbara Nice in solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012 and 2014.
'Barbara Nice — ordinary housewife extraodinaire — has given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Poundstretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy circuit (h...er husband thinks she's at the bingo). No audience is too rowdy for her to handle — she's already raised five teenagers. She believes in bargains, Take a Break magazine, getting the most from life. Oh and Stage-diving! This well observed comedy character is so likeable that she draws even the most cynical of audiences and takes them along for a ride. 'A hybrid between Victoria Wood and Mrs Merton'
