Nick Mohammed is a comedian, writer and actor. In the UK, he is best known for his character Mr Swallow, who he developed more than 20 years ago. Nick played Nate in the hit series Ted Lasso, opposite Jason Sudeikis, earning him Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series in 2021 and 2022. He created, wrote, executive-produced and co-starred in Sky One's Intelligence, alongside David Schwimmer, and is here to talk about playing Billy Blind in Disney+’s Renegade Nell, written by Sally Wainwright. In this episode, Angela cooks up a real crowd pleaser. It’s a delicious one-pot spiced roast chicken with saffron rice with a side of green beans and hazelnut crumb, which she says is one of her favourite Dish recipes so far. The experts at Waitrose pair the meal with an O’Leary Walker organic riesling from Australia. Conversation kicks off with some kudos, as Nick and Angela congratulate Nick for being the first guest to run to a Dish record. Angela enjoys an in-depth chat about her favourite show and Nick reveals the origin story of alter-ego.  Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.
