It has been a pretty great year for Nile. He spent most of the year performing with Sugar Sammy as part of the first bilingual comedy stand up show You’re Gonna Rire (over 50 performances in Montréal alone) and this year was the first comic to perform at both the Festival Juste Pour Rire and it’s English counterpart Just For Laughs in the same year.
Besides performing to critical acclaim, Nile recently completed the Triple Crown of Canadian Comedy Festivals going to the Just for Laughs Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and the Halifax Comedy Festival in a single year. He also was a part of the Sudbury Comedy Festival and the Cottage Country Comedy Festival.
Nile’s style works on stage, television, radio and film. Nile has written for award winning national television for shows such as This Hour Has 22 Minutes and the Gemini Award wining The Hour (where he was a regular on air contributor). He also made his first film appearance in the critically acclaimed indie comedy Ham and Cheese. He is a regular on air contributor for CBC Radio and is also a writer on the radio sketch comedy show The Irrelevant Show which took home the bronze medal at the International Radio Broadcasting Awards in New York City.
Nile has performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, has twice been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and recently taped his first television special.
There is some other stuff I could mention but I’m tired of trying to impress you. It demeans us both.
