Stand Up Comedian
Nick Griffin started his stand up career in Kansas City at the age of nineteen. By the time he graduated from college three years later, he was working full time all across the country.
He moved to New York City in 1990 cutting his teeth on midnight shows in Greenwich Village. He was poor and alone but getting funnier and funnier. Eventually he relocated to Los Angeles and quickly became a regular at the world famous Improv and The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.
During this time, he appeared on a handful of television shows including A&E’s An Evening at the Improv and Comedy on the Road. He also began writing for television. Nick was a staff writer on the Keenen Ivory Wayans Show in 1996. And later a head writer for the Bobby Slayton/Sue Murphy radio show. But his first love was always stand up comedy.
In 1998 he was invited to take part in the New Faces show at The HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. That same year he made his network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, as well as Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. Nick has made 8 appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. Following his first appearance on the Late Show, Worldwide Pants signed Nick to a development deal that was set up at ABC. Nick has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, as well as having his own Comedy Central ½ hour special.
He now headlines America’s best comedy clubs and is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio’s The Bob and Tom Show.
Nick is still alone, but still getting funnier with each passing day. (Why screw up a good formula, right?)
His comedy is personal, precise and powerful. It’s true.
