Nicky as Carol Channing
An Affectionate Tribute
When it comes to portraying the essence of Carol Channing, few artists have had Nicky's advantage. For several years Nicky was Miss Channing's personal assistant, observing her personality up close and learning her mannerisms. Now Nicky gives us his take on one of the American Musical Theatre’s greatest artists as he performs Channing’s signature comedy routines and sings her legendary songs including "Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend”, “I’m Just A Little Girl From Little Rock”, “Hello Dolly” and many, many more.
Nicky's performance is pure enjoyment for all ages. One of the best aspects of Nicky-as-Carol is that everything performed is live - no lip-synching here! And, because of that, each show is unique and spontaneous based on the audience's reactions.
Nicky does such a good job of BEING Carol Channing - with physical mimicry, facial expressions, costumes, make-up and a spot-on recreation of Channing's unique voice. When the curtain comes down, you have a wonderful warm sensation that you have just shared a part of Carol’s life.
Nicky has brought Carol Channing to a national audience, working with celebrities including: Thea Gill from "Queer as Folk", Lucie Arnaz, Ann Walker, Kaye Ballard, Debbie Reynolds and Jimmy James.
