Nick Di Paolo Live at the Drafthouse Comedy Theater


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. Nick began his career in his hometown of Boston and two-years later, made the jump to New York, where he found his seething, sarcastic style was welcomed with open arms by New York audiences at such clubs as Catch a Rising Star, Caroline’s and The Comedy Cellar. It was at clubs like these were he honed his uncompromising point of view, which makes him not only a club favorite, but a true "comic's comic."

His range has allowed him to perform on shows as tame as "The Tonight Show," yet as edgy as HBO's "Young Comedians Special", "Late Night with David Letterman" and Conan O Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on "The Chris Rock Show." He has also had three half hour stand up specials of his own on Comedy Central and was one of the stars on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and a stand out on many C.Central Roasts. Not limited to stand-up and writing, he has had guest starring roles on “Lucky Louie,” "The Sopranos" and many sitcoms as well as in films including Artie Lange’s “Beer League.” A critic for the Winnipeg Press said it best when he described Nick as "Gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield, Nick Di Paolo is an experience constrained only slightly by the demands of stand up comedy."

His strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio as well. He is a favorite on both Howard Stern and Opie and Anthony and hosted his own show on New York’s 92.3 Free Fm. Hide the women and children …here comes Nick Di Paolo.
