Gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield”. Nick DiPaolo’s honest and acerbic comedy has made him a sought after voice on stage, television and radio for years and earned him two Emmy Nominations for writing.
DiPaolo’s career took off after he appeared on “HBO’s Young Comedian Special”. He has since written and performed four standup specials and four CDs. The most recent standup effort being a one hour Showtime special entitled “Raw Nerve”. He was a regular for the whole two year run of “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and became a staple on the Comedy Central roasts. Other notable television and film credits include “Louie”, “Lucky Louie”, Artie Lange’s “Beer League” a guest starring role on “The Sopranos” and “The Chris Rock Show”, where he was a writer for two seasons as well. Writing credits also include the 77th Annual Academy Awards and the MTV Music Video Awards.
For years he has been a favorite guest on radio shows including “The Howard Stern Show”, “The Opie and Anthony Show” and “The Dennis Miller Show” to name a few. He also hosted “The Nick DiPaolo Show” in New York City in 2007 and “The Nick and Artie Show” from 2011-2012.
Nick began his career in Boston, then 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. 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.
Dipaolo is often referred to as a comic's comic because there are no facades, no act. It’s all Nick DiPaolo, all the time."
