Patrick Nice
Patrick Nice

Mark Williams says that the idea for Patrick Nice came from plummy-voiced actors of a certain age using the phrase, '...which was nice' about everything.

Patrick Nice can usually be found in his suburban kitchen making coffee, or maybe in the potting shed. Where Patrick differs from an actor talking about his latest role, is that his tales are somewhat less plausible.

He has discovered that he is a direct descendent of Kubla Khan, won the lottery twice in a fortnight, watched REM play an impromptu concert at the presentation of his son's Nobel Chemisty Prize and discovered a cure for cancer.

'...and I was rummaging around in the attic and I found the original copy of the Bible. Which was nice.'
