Who is Nick Sun?
Nick Sun is an Australian stand-up comedian. He is of Nepalese extraction, but chooses to eschew obvious cultural stereotyping in his act, favouring a style that has been described as "unhinged", "offensive" "nihilistic" and "self-destructive."
In 2004, Nick won Raw Comedy, a national competition for new comic talent run by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. That same year, he also went on to win the So You Think You're Funny competition grand final, held at the Gilded Balloon as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Alongside his appearances at Australia's major comedy venues, Sun regularly appears at the Cracker Comedy Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In 2006, he performed at the invitation-only Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Canada.
