Watto — artist, musician, man-baby. He created the Cat Factory artwork during his “mushroom period,” but he’s now sober and living by the straight-edge ethos. He grew up amid the mess and chaos of his wayward mother and would give away his millions in the blink of an eye to have her back in his life. In the meanwhile, he busies himself with splurges and spending sprees and obsessions. A chance meeting with a kindred spirit appears to offer redemption, but when the thin finger of death points in his direction, Watto’s sent into a tailspin of guilt and remorse.
Since starting stand-up comedy in 2007, the talented and enthusiastic Nick Helm quickly gained attention from the industry for his unique, powerful and above all hilarious blend of one-liners, stories, poems and songs.
Helm was nominated for a BAFTA and a Broadcast Digital Award for his short film Elephant, and was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for his performance in the BBC’s Uncle. Additionally, Nick released a successful new album, “Nick Helm Is F*cking Amazing,” at a large album launch at the O2 Forum in spring 2016.
Other credits include The Girl in the Dress, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment and Sisters.
Alongside his solo stand-up, he is also half of the double act Helm and was the creator of the innovative “My First Gig,” a live comedy night where stand-ups dissect their first-ever performances.
