Seen him live. He destroys. He's similar to guys like Patrice or Vos in that he talks to the audience and sometimes will just go off the cuff and talk to the crowd if they are a good crowd. Nick is good on radio. He's one of the few guys like Colin Quinn, Doug Stanhope, and a few others that would be a perfect fit for the Jackie chair.
I think he's the best stand up out there working now.
I would be very disappointed if he isn't on the show. Artie and Nick had good chemistry. We kind of had a mini-trial 2 weeks ago when they were rotating sick days what the show would be like without either one of them. It would suck. Nick is quick witing and works the board and Artie tells the best stories.
I've liked nick since the tough crowd days, he's a great comedian...not the best radio guy, but has good chemistry with artie and I was happy that he found a good paying gig. I'll be pissed if these rumors turn out to be true.
