Nikki has a lifelong fascination with all things magical. When asked as a child what she wanted to be when she grew up, she used to confidently say, “A wizard.” Performing with Completely Improvised Potter has enabled her to finally get close to achieving this important life goal.
She also plays with Soothplayers: Completely Improvised Shakespeare. Nikki trained in improvised theatre with the The Improv Conspiracy, where she was on house teams Elevator DJs, Your Elected King and Friends At The End. Her solo standup show Asexual Healing debuted at MICF 2016 and is touring in 2017.
A graduate of the VCA School of Film and Television, Nikki has also worked on numerous community TV shows, including as a writer on popular comedy quiz show 31 Questions. When not making art, she is usually writing about it. As a theatre critic, Nikki writes for Australian Stage and has also written extensively for Concrete Playground and The Pun.
