Nick Flanagan is a singular talent in the post-NAFTA underground comedy scene. Nick's endearing conversational deadpan, choice subject matter, and "sort-of pregnant" pauses have won him battalions of die-hard followers.

He has performed at SF SKETCHFEST, FUN FUN FUN FEST, BRIDGETOWN COMEDY FESTIVAL, and Andy Kindler’s Alternative Show at JFL42 and JFL. He has recently relocated from the comedic nucleus of Los Angeles where he hosted Night Comedy at the revered Night Gallery.

In-between good old fashioned stand-up comedy sets, Nick sings in punk bands, writes on such shows as Emmy Award winning Odd Squad (PBS) and Cupcake & Dinosaur (NETFLIX), stars in feature films like indie darlings Diamond Tongues and Sundowners, make radio appearances on The Best Show with Tom Scharpling and WFMU’s Goddamn Dave Hill Show.

Fawn Parker is a writer based between Toronto and Montreal. She is co-founder of BAD NUDES Magazine and its sister press BAD BOOKS. She is the author of Looking Good and Having a Good Time (Metatron, 2015), Weak Spot (Anstruther, 2018), and Set-Point (ARP Books, 2019). Fawn is a current MA candidate in the field of creative writing at the University of Toronto.
