We once again partner up with one of the most prestigious comedy festivals in all of Canada, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival. Every show will feature a different headliner and we’ve been known to be the unofficial ‘clubhouse’ during the week, with a lot of surprise pop in comics doing some time.
Nile Séguin is one of Canada’s funniest comedians. With appearances on Comedy Network’s critically acclaimed The Beaverton as well as People of Earth and The Expanse, Nile is also known as Alister on the City TV sitcom Second Jen. He has performed at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, the Halifax Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. A three time Canadian Comedy Award nominee, Nile has opened for Gregg Proops, James Adomian, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Behrendt, Aparna Nancherla and Matt Braunger. He has written for Comedy Network’s The Beaverton as well as This Hour Has 22 Minutes and the Gemini Award-winning The Hour (where he was a regular on air contributor). He was also nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for his writing on CBC’s Still Standing. 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).
