Heckle's Comedy Show Presents Nigel Larson
Nigel Larson is a Tacoma, WA based comedian originally from Western New York.
A few years ago, Nigel Larson was nothing more than a single, unemployed college dropout living in his parents' basement. This seemed to him the perfect time to start a career in stand-up comedy, and it was. In his first year he was quickly recognized by the Rochester Metromix paper, Insider, as one of the funniest and most active comics in the western New York Region. He was named one of the "top 5 funniest comics in Rochester under 30" in 2008 and then was on the cover as "the face of Rochester comedy" in 2010. Just as quickly Nigel realized that if he wanted to make more than $500 a year doing stand-up he would have to move. So with lofty goals of doubling that annual income, he left the safety and security of his parents' basement for the safety and security of his grandparents' basement in Tacoma, WA. He is now the house M.C. at the Tacoma Comedy Underground.
Nigel takes the stage with a jovial demeanor and instant likability. At first playing on his innocent appearance to establish rapport with the audience he then quickly reveals that beneath his boyish good looks lies a cuttingly clever wit. His act is largely autobiographical, turning a lifetime of failure into consistent on-stage success with honest stories and sophisticated material. This coupled with a dry and subtle delivery, Nigel is the pleasant surprise audiences are looking for. His act is powerful enough for the drunk, indifferent crowds of a bar, yet intellectually satiating for the audiences of a college. Nigel has had the pleasure of opening for such national acts Kyle Cease, Ty Barnett, Rebecca Cory, Jim Florentine, Jimmy Shubert, Mike E. Winfield, Dwight Slade and Auggie Smith.
