As the dreary act of joining a bureaucratic workforce bound to a stranger's bottom line occurred to Geoff in his early twenties, he realized that earning a reliable salary, casual fridays, and morning conversations about the weather were not for him. He began wandering on to stages and telling funny anecdotes in Ottawa, Canada as a means of avoiding the vapid work vortex.
His absurd observations about toasters, math textbooks, skydiving and social convention make him a fixture in the Canadian comedy landscape. He has performed across Canada, the UK, the Culturally Divided States of America, and China.
Nile Séguin is one funny dude.
Besides performing to critical acclaim, Nile recently completed the Triple Crown of Canadian Comedy Festivals going to the Just for Laughs Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and the Halifax Comedy Festival in a single year. Nile has also performed at the Boston Comedy Festival , San Francisco Sketchfest and has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award three times.
Nile has opened for Sugar Sammy as part of the first bilingual comedy stand up show You’re Gonna Rire (over 50 performances in Montréal alone) and was the first comic to perform at both the Festival Juste Pour Rire and it’s English counterpart Just For Laughs in the same year. He's also opened for Gregg Proops, James Adomian, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Behrendt, Aparna Nancherla and Matt Braunger.
