His mother is English and his father is from Barbados.Aswell as becoming one of the most consistent acts on the comedy circuit, his versatility has also made him a much sought after compere. He has the ability to adapt and play to a multitude of audiences and is skillful, observant and affable enough put them immediately at ease.

In additon to this, Nik Coppin is also the creator, producer and MC of the international and hugely popular hit show ‘Shaggers’, which has experienced sell-out shows in Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne, Darwin and a number of UK cities.A spin-off from this is the ‘Huggers’ show which is also growing in popularity after it’s first seasons at the international comedy festivals.
