His popularity soared as the host of Australia’s highest rating children’s show at the time, Creature Features – which reached five seasons. Nick was soon in demand to host family and kids’ events across Australia, such as Kidswish Christmas Party, The Royal Easter Show, Fifi and The Flowertots Garden Party Launch, Australia Day Council Family Concert, Lord Mayors New Years’ Eve Celebration, City of Sydney Christmas Carols, and City of Sydney Lighting of the Christmas Tree Martin Place and many more.
