Nic Novicki, along with Barbara Holliday and Joshua Snyder, discusses how it’s a coincidence that he’s part Irish, a little person, and that it’s Saint Patrick’s Day; that he has a Marketing Degree but decided to go into comedy instead, that he’s now engaged, and tons of other cool fun things! During Punch It Up, Edgar Momplaisir and Brandon Stewart perform 3 minute sets and get critiques.
Nic Novicki has been performing for large crowds of people since age 8. As a kid, he would give comical speeches to organizations in order to raise money for the Little People of America. His achievements earlier on in his life led him into representing the youth leadership forum (YLF) for persons with disabilities. He spoke with Bob Dole in front of Congress at the 11th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, introducing Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao. He was awarded an academic scholarship to Temple University’s Fox school of business where he graduated cum laude double majoring in Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
During his first week of school Nic walked past a comedy club and decided to give stand-up a shot. He must have nailed it straight out of the gate because just 3 days later he was being paid for his work. His experiences in stand-up comedy soon led to an interest in acting. Wanting to learn more about his new found craft, Nic studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, School of Film and Television, and improvisational comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade.
This talented young man continued following his dreams of pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. He joined a start up Production/Marketing Company called Instant Gratification Entertainment, and began a career in Producing. He’s produced several independent movies, commercials, music videos, and developed Marketing campaigns for Sony, Universal and many other companies. In between producing projects he’s managed to flourish as an actor appearing on HBO’s hit show The Sopranos, ABC’s Private Practice, Starz’s Headcase, and on Saturday Night Live in a recurring role as “Alfie”. Currently he has a recurring role on a new HBO show called “Boardwalk Empire” which is being produced, and directed by legendary film maker Martin Scorsese.
