Since breaking into comedy writing with David Cadji-Newby in 2004 on Channel 5’s ‘Swinging’, Nico Tatarowicz has written and co-written for a veritable schmorgas-board of comedy talent. His output has included gags for panel show glitterati like Jimmy Carr, Jason Manford and Alan Carr as well as script work for high-profile comedy events such as The O2 Comedy Gala and the British Comedy Awards. Sketch shows formed a meaty basis for Nico’s early writing career, notably all three BBC1 series of 'The Armstrong and Miller Show', and Channel 4’s highly acclaimed 'Very Important People' in which he also performed. As a day-rate gag/script-writing hired gun he has helped inject funny into such shows as ‘The Kumars’, The Hoff’s 'Best Films Ever', 'Worlds Craziest Fools with Mr T and ‘Greatest Ever Movie Mistakes’. However recent years have found him spending much more time working on story-telling and narrative-based projects. Nico contributed several stories across 4 series of Award Winning Dave show ‘Crackanory’, seeing his words brought to life by Paul Whitehouse, Harry Enfield, Vic Reeves and Carrie Fisher amongst others. Most recently Nico has been a key part of the writing team for 3 series of BBC3 cult hit ‘Murder In Successville’, which he also appears in as hapless ‘Sid Lowecroft’. He also co-wrote Tom Davis explosive new spy vehicle ‘Action Team’ for ITV2, and earlier in 2017 a one –off special of Morgana Robinson’s ‘The Agency’ in which viewers were treated to a 30 minute sitcom episode based around Robinsons much loved impression of TV’s Natalie Cassidy. He also contributed all of the Natalie Cassidy sketch material to the same series. Nico is also an actor and has picked up performing credits in, amongst other projects ‘Murder In Successville’, 'Very Important People', ‘The Warm Up Guy’, ‘Crackanory’, Nigel Cole’s Brit-Flick 'Made in Dagenham' and a sketch-show pilot shown as Channel 4’s Comedy Lab season, entitled 'Happy Finish.' His Liam and Noel Gallagher impressions are the stuff of cult-youtube legend. He now produces and fronts a podcast called ‘Sick Minds’ with writer friend Alistair Griggs, and has also contributed voiceovers and music, both serious and comedic, to various productions. Nico is a formidable singer and songwriter and credits include efforts for indie director Jamie Adams features ‘Benny and Jolene’ and ‘Songbird’. Nico has grown to embrace the white bit that now almost completely dominates his quiff.
