Comedian Nick Nemeroff Dies in His Sleep at Age 32

Nick Nemeroff, the Canadian standup comedian whose debut album was last year nominated for a Juno award, has died at age 32.

The family made the announcement on Nemeroff’s social-media accounts, including Twitter and Instagram.

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, 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.

Nemeroff’s manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, said that the young comedian “died in his sleep.” A cause of death has not been announced.

Nemeroff posted about receiving a shot of synthetic mRNA on February 5, 2021.

Ok so I got the vaccine and it did have a side effect…the area the needle went into (if I had to describe it I’d say like, on the top part of my upper arm. If that makes sense?) hurt a bit after. Seems ok now but honestly do NOT recommend getting it & wish I could take it back

He also posted on Instagram about a “vaccine nurse” on May 7, 2021.

POV I am an anti vaxxer but only for the booster shot

Damn…might have to delete my booster shot post on IG…not doing numbers like I hoped. Kind of regret getting it now…

Nemeroff, who recently lived in Toronto, was nominated for comedy album of the year at the 2021 Junos for his debut This Pursuit of Comedy Has Ruined My Life.

Nemeroff performed a set on Conan O’Brien’s late-night show when he was 28 years old.
