Nick Revell - Brokendreamcatcher

A series of contemporary comic tales that could almost be true. Anything can happen when this master storyteller combines comedy with magical realism - and it probably will.

0101The Treasure Of The Illuminati Leprechauns20180913This week, some sinister goings-on at The Vatican can all be safely explained.
0102Vladimir Putin's Bottom Is Missing20180920This week - what Valdimir Putin and Angela Merkel have in common turns out to be more than a shared interest in The Archers.
0103 lastNick Revell V Lily, Evil Cat Queen Of Earth Planet And The Laughing Fridge20180927This week we learn that cats injected with nanobots which consequently form a neural lace, will almost certainly get up to no good.
0201Clash Of The Hipster Shamans20200903In this episode, the coincidental opening of two 'shaman shops' in north London leads to previously undreamed of events unfolding at the Nag's Head crossroads in Holloway. Unlikely as it might seem, Hollywood A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow gets involved - she reveals her visceral dislike of Taylor Swift, a secret passion for 1970s Rugby League and asks to borrow Nick's kettle.... but can they find the dream catcher repairman's business card in time?

These are outlandish stories told with energy, wit and intelligence served with both a smile and a barb. They are illustrated and supported by an original soundtrack written and performed by Paul Clark of London's Clod Ensemble.

0202Eurasia's Most Eligible Psychopaths And Their Lovely Homes20200910This episode is presented from The Fox and Gynaecologist, one of Islington's last remaining traditional boozers. Life is rarely easy for a stand-up comedian who has to take on writing for the glossy gossip magazines, just to make ends meet, but the offer of a trip to tiny Transoxania (“Land of Unparalleled Investment Opportunities!”) to cover the wedding of their president, Genghis Khan III, is too tempting to turn down. It doesn't go well.

These are outlandish stories told with energy, wit and intelligence served with both a smile and a barb. They are illustrated and supported by an original soundtrack written and performed by Paul Clark of London's Clod Ensemble.
