Montreal-raised standup comedian Nick Nemeroff died suddenly on Monday at the age of 32, his family announced in a Twitter post.
“It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff,” a statement on his Twitter account read.
“Nick’s dedication to standup 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 enamored by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy,” the post added. “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,” the statement concluded.

His cause of death has not been revealed yet. His manager, Morgan Flood of Grand Wave Entertainment, told CBC News that he has no information yet on the cause of death but that Nick “died in his sleep.”
Funeral arrangements are yet to be announced.
Back in 2021, Nick posted a tweet about having a side effect following his Covid-19 vaccination.
“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,” he wrote. “Seems ok now but honestly do NOT recommend getting it & wish I could take it back.”
Nick posted another video attacking the Pfizer Covid vaccine. In the video, Nick can be heard saying he will not get the booster shot.
“I will not get the third shot. I will not. Pfizer me once, no shame. Pfizer me twice, shame on COVID. Pfizer me three times, shame on you. You want me to get a third shot? What’s next? A fifth shot? No, thank you,” Nick argued.
