Nick Nemeroff, the Montreal-raised comedian who scored a Juno Award for Comedy Album of the Year for his 2020 album ‘The Pursuit of Comedy Has Ruined My Life’, passed away suddenly on Monday (June 27). His family and agency confirmed the news that he died in his sleep. However, the cause of his death hasn’t been revealed yet.
His manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, said in a text message to CBC News that he didn’t know the cause of death but that he “died in his sleep.” However, a statement on Nick’s Instagram page reads as under:
“It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff. Nick’s dedication to standup comedy was formidable and produced amazing results. He drew acclaim in Canada and the US, becoming both a ‘comic’s comic’ and a hit with crowds who were enamoured by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy. If Nick was on a comedy show, he was guaranteed to leave with new fans. And he deserved to, because comedy was, in many ways, his life. Endlessly sweet, supportive of others, and humble about his many skills and achievements, Nick lived his life doing what he loved, and that is how he will be remembered. RIP Nick. We love you. (sic)”
