L.A, 2022-06-27 20:49:00. Nick Nemirov: Fans mourn the sudden death
Montreal-raised comedian Nick Nemroff passed away on Monday, causing grief from comedy fans across Canada. He was 32 years old.
“A truly devastating loss to the Toronto and Montreal comedy communities, as he developed and perfected his unique performance and delivery style,” his agency, Grand Wave Entertainment, wrote in a statement released Monday night.
“Nick will be deeply missed, and he will be fondly remembered.”
Nemeroff has amassed a long list of awards since he began his comedy career. He appeared in comedy shows on CBCC CTV and appeared in ‘Conan’ and ‘Just for Laughs’. He was nominated for a Juno Award in 2021 for his album The Pursuit of Comedy Ruined My Life.
“We were so proud to watch Nick grow into one of Canada’s most popular and respected comedians,” Grand Wave wrote in the statement.
The Nemirov family wrote in their obituary their “deep sadness” over his untimely death.
According to the obituary, Nemeroff grew up in Montreal West and attended the Royal West Academy, and later studied at the College of Radio and Television Arts at Toronto Metropolitan University.
“He left behind a large group of loyal friends scattered across the many places he lived: Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles and Australia,” the family said.
They said that Nemirov was considered a “comedy” and was popular with audiences.
It had a “unique rhythm, rigid maze, and [a] A new take on disinformation-driven comedy,” his family wrote.
“If Nick was on a comedy show, he was guaranteed to leave with new fans. And he deserved it, because the comedy was, in many ways, his life.”
In March 2022, The Suburban wrote a short newspaper article about Nemeroff, also noting that he had gone to Dawson College and John Molson College of Business in Concordia before jumping into the comics.
Nemirov was also a brother to two brothers and an “incredible uncle” to four children, according to the appeal. The family said he also left his parents.
Outside of the comics, his family wrote, “His family, friends, and Montreal Canadians were so important to him.”
“Infinitely kind, supportive of others, and humble about his many skills and accomplishments, Nick Nemirov has lived his life doing what he loves, and that is how people will remember him.”
Neither the agency nor the Nemirov family announced the cause of his death. His funeral date has not been announced.
His family had an early suggestion on how to remember him.
They wrote, “One of the last things Nick did was to donate money to Planned Parenthood. As such, instead of flowers, the donations may be made in his memory to the Planned Parenthood branch of your choice.”
In the wake of this news, fellow comedians and comedy fans from across the country have taken to social media to mourn, saying that Nemirov is not only talented, but loved by many.
“It’s a devastating day for those who knew him. Nick Nemeroff was a beautiful man. My condolences to his family and everyone in the world of comedy. I liked him very much,” wrote comedian John Doer.
SNL cast member Sarah Sherman tweeted that he “was the sweetest and funniest guy ever,” encouraging people to listen to his album.
“The absolute master of absurdity and indifference. The absolute gem of a man,” Toronto comedian Sophie Conn wrote. “I loved sharing the stage with you, my friend.”
