Nile Séguin is one funny dude.
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. Nile has also performed at the Boston Comedy Festival , San Francisco Sketchfest and has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award three times.
Nile has opened for Sugar Sammy as part of the first bilingual comedy stand up show You’re Gonna Rire (over 50 performances in Montréal alone) and 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. He's also opened for Gregg Proops, James Adomian, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Behrendt, Aparna Nancherla and Matt Braunger.
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. Nile has also recently written, starred in, produced and directed his first short film "Third Date" which recently debuted at the LA Comedy Festival.
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.
A perfect blend of serious and silly, Nile’s comedy has been compared to a very strong and delicious Appletini or a slap from a velvet glove (if you’re into that kind of thing).
