Nick Di Paolo

The Winnipeg Press said it best: “Gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield”. Nick Di Paolo’s honest and acerbic comedy has made him a sought after voice on stage, television and radio for years and earned him two Emmy Nominations for writing.

Di Paolo’s career took off after he appeared on “HBO’s Young Comedian Special”. He has since written and performed four standup specials and four CDs. The most recent standup effort being a one hour Showtime special entitled “Raw Nerve”.

He was a regular for the whole two year run of “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and became a staple on the Comedy Central roasts. Other notable television and film credits include “Louie”, “Lucky Louie”, Artie Lange’s “Beer League” a guest starring role on “The Sopranos” and “The Chris Rock Show”, where he was a writer for two seasons as well. Writing credits also include the 77th Annual Academy Awards and the MTV Music Video Awards.

For years he has been a favorite guest on radio shows including “The Howard Stern Show”, “The Opie and Anthony Show” and “The Dennis Miller Show” to name a few. He also hosted “The Nick Di Paolo Show” in New York City in 2007 and “The Nick and Artie Show” from 2011-2012.

Nick Di Paolo is probably one of the most authentic voices whether on or off stage. He’s referred to as a comic's comic because there are no facades, no act. It’s all Nick Di Paolo, all the time.

In this day of watered down comedy Nick Di Paolo's brutally honest performances remind us of what great stand up should be funny, socially relevant and a little bit reckless. Originally a Bostonian, Nick honed his seething, sarcastic style in New York City. He has performed on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan O’ Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show. He has also had three half hour standup specials on Comedy Central, a Showtime Special “Raw Nerve”, a self released special “Another Senseless Killing” and most recently “Inflammatory”. He was one of the stars on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and a stand out on many Comedy Central Roasts. Not limited to stand-up and writing, he has had acting roles on FX’s Louie, Inside Amy Schumer, The Sopranos, Cop Show and CK’s critically acclaimed Horace and Pete as well as many sitcoms. His strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio as well. He hosted his own show on New York’s 92.3 Free FM, co-hosted The Nick & Artie Show and presently he hosts one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes, The Nick Di Paolo podcast.
