Nick Durie - Petitions
Nick Durie started doing stand-up comedy at the ripe age of 37, in the un-ripe city of Hamilton. Now back where he belongs in Toronto, he regularly performs at Absolute Comedy and The Corner Comedy Club, all the while balancing a professional career almost no one understands. It's been his life-long goal to be the Ambassador of anything, so he is incredibly proud to join CASC. The fact that this bio is still going is meant to mask his lack of credits.
