Nick Mohammed is Mr Swallow

Nick Mohammed Is Mr Swallow

CKP By Arrangement With United Agents

Nick Mohammed is brilliantly irritating in creating a character you both love and loathe, whose annoying personality is underlined with what is ultimately intelligent comedy. It is easy to be drawn in by Mohammed’s facade and find yourself frustrated by this character, but that is his intention. The show ends with a twist that reveals a method to his madness, as Mr Swallow’s ridiculous linking system for recounting memory is justified with an impressive demonstration. The multi-faceted nature of the characters Nick Mohammed creates is remarkable and, although for some it may be too unbearable, for those that are able to endure or even enjoy the pain it is well worth the watch. Who knows, you may even learn something.
