Nigel Grinstead’s laid back charm and absurd take on life have earned him the reputation of being one of the goofiest and most imaginative upcoming comics in the Canadian scene, with appearances at NXNE, Cottage Country Comedy Festival, and No Kidding on iChannel. On top of festival performances and countless appearances on the GTA comedy scene, Nigel has traveled coast to coast and can be heard on CBC and Sirius XM Radio. Nigel was also the recipient of the Tim Sim’s Encouragement Fund, a prize for his victory at Cream of Comedy 2013, and was the victor of the 2014 Toronto Comedy Brawl as well as a finalist in Sirius XM’s Top Comic competition. Recently he made his debut at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal and took home the win at the Homegrown contest: an annual contest recognizing the strongest upcoming Canadian talent.
