Nick Nemeroff is a Montreal comic who has been a mainstay in the Toronto comedy scene for the past few years, winning Best Newcomer and Best Breakout Comic at the 2017 and 2018 I Heart Joke Awards. He's made appearances at Montreal's Just for Laughs and Comedy Central's Clusterfest, and his comedy has been described as "aggressively deadpan". If you're wondering what that means, just watch his set from last fall on Conan. It's a joy.
After first coming to Winnipeg for the Oddblock Comedy Festival a couple years ago, Nick is making his first appearance at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival this weekend. I got to chat with him ahead of his visit, and they spoke about his upcoming TV gala taping at the festival, his experience on Conan, and what's in store now that he's made the move to Los Angeles.
If you're in Winnipeg, you can catch Nick as part of the "Square Pegs" gala on Saturday, May 4 at 6:45 PM at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. Otherwise, you can follow him on Instagram (@nicknemeroff) and Twitter (@nicknemeroff), or check out his YouTube channel with a super easy to remember URL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFgZnWUqQFeLYUPqBLjRgbg.
