Nick Nemeroff has died at the age of 32. The Canadian comedian’s family confirmed the tragic news via a statement shared to his Instagram account on June 27, along with three photos of the star, including one of him standing up. “It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of our beloved brother, Nick Nemeroff. Nick’s dedication to standup comedy has been impressive and has yielded amazing results,” the statement began. It went on to say that Nemeroff – who once appeared in ‘Conan’ – was becoming better known for his hilarious routines in the US and Canada, with his family describing him as “both a comic book comic” and a hit with crowds who love it were enamored with its unique cadence, labyrinthine void and fresh take on deception-driven comedy.” They captioned the description of the late star as: “Endlessly sweet, supportive of others, humbled about his many skills and accomplishments, Nick lived his life and did what he loved, and that is how he will be remembered.”
The Instagram post did not allude to Nemeroff’s cause of death, although CBC News reported that the comedian’s manager, Grand Wave Entertainment’s Morgan Flood, confirmed via text message to the Canadian news outlet that he had died in his sleep. It is believed that his death was unexpected. Grand Wave Entertainment also paid tribute via a statement shared on Twitter, in which the company wrote, “Truly a devastating loss to the Toronto and Montreal comedy communities where he developed and perfected his unique performance and presentation style.”
