As a creator, Nick champions the power of simplicity in performance. He is a performing company member of Broken Box Mime Theater, a collaborative ensemble creating original contemporary short stories entirely through movement. Mime? Yes mime. We're bringin' it back. Check us out.
In 2014, Nick co-created Hold On To Your Butts... a live, two-man and a foley artist, "shot for shot" parody of the movie Jurassic Park. TimeOut NY named it one of the Top 10 Comedy shows of 2014. The same team, now Recent Cutbacks, banded together again to create Fly, You Fools, a "shot for shot" parody of the first Lord of the Rings movie. In late 2016, the team upped the ante and created KEVIN!!!!! a live "shot for shot" parody of Home Alone featuring puppets, projections, and a freaking 4-person choir!
Spring 2019, Recent Cutbacks will be parodying the final six Game of Thrones episodes as they air.
