Mr. Swallow is one of the country's most popular/irritating comedy creations from Nick Mohammed – one of the UK's most celebrated comedians, actors and writers. Nick has received feverish critical acclaim for his live character comedy work and has transferred the success of Mr. Swallow to the small screen as a regular face in Dictionary Corner on Cats Does Countdown.

Prepare to be dazzled in The Very Best & Worst of Mr. Swallow as Swallow attempts to solve a Rubik's cube, memorise a deck of playing cards and do some pretty horrendous maths while on roller-skates. Oh, plus the whole of Les Mis! This and countless more classic Mr. Swallow moments such as the one where he complains about eating a banana. 

Mr. Swallow said: “Just when I thought my little legs (and toes) couldn't take it anymore, I've decided to don my skates FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK of shows at the Duke of Yorks in the hope that everyone in the UK has the opportunity to see this show at least twice. A million thanks to everyone who's already seen it but frankly it's not enough! Love and hugs.”

Nick has wowed audiences as Mr. Swallow multiple times on Channel 4's Cats Does Countdown, with clips of his performances quickly going viral. Viewing figures for the clip of Mr. Swallow's rendition of Jurassic Park stand at over 9 million on Facebook whilst the clip of him memorising a deck of playing cards has been viewed over 12 million times!
