Nick Nemeroff rose to fame both in his own Canada and the United States after performing at Clusterfest on Comedy Central and on Conan O’Brien’s show. Nick has passed away at the age of 32. His cause of death has not been made public at this time.
In a statement lamenting his “sudden passing,” the family of comedian Nick Nemeroff confirmed his death. His family referred to Nemeroff as a “comic’s comic” who enjoyed success in both his own Canada and the United States in a message posted on his Instagram account.
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff. Nick’s dedication to standup comedy was formidable, and produced amazing results. He drew acclaim in Canada and the US, becoming both a ‘comic’s comic’ and a hit with crowds who were enamoured by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy. If Nick was on a comedy show, he was guaranteed to leave with new fans. And he deserved to, because comedy was, in many ways, his life. Endlessly sweet, supportive of others, humble about his many skills and achievements, Nick lived his life doing what he loved, and that is how he will be remembered. RIP Nick. We love you.
Nemeroff’s family applauded “his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy.” The Pursuit of Comedy Has Ruined My Life, Nemeroff’s debut stand-up album, was nominated for a Juno Award last year, which honors Canadian performers in the arts.
Nemeroff further had an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s talk show and at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and Clusterfest on Comedy Central. We send our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. RIP.
