Nikki Payne


 2012 Canadian Comedy Person of the Year!

A lot sure has happened for Nikki Payne since moving west from her trailer park in Nova Scotia.  Her sharp tongue, engaging charm and trademark lisp has won her multiple Canadian Comedy Awards, and Gemini nominations.  Nikki has traveled the world with her unique sense of humor, performing at major comedy festivals such as Kilkenny’s Cat Laughs, The Las Vegas Comedy Festival and Montreal’s Just For Laughs, where she has been honored with being asked to play “The Talk of the Fest” shows twice.

You may have seen Nikki on your television as she has been on many Canadian programs such as CBC’s “Made in Canada,” “The Best of Just For Laughs,” the wildly popular Much Music’s “Video On Trial,” CTV’s “Comedy Now,” “Comedy INC” and her very own special, “Nikki’s Funtime Show.”   She also made it to the semi finals of season five’s “Last Comic Standing” and you can also catch her on Showcase’s “Single White Spenny.”   2012 will see Nikki perform at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the St. John’s Comedy Festival, the Edmonton Comedy Festival and the Brantford Comedy Festival.

In 2012, Nikki was awarded the Canadian Comedy Person of the Year by the Canadian Comedy Awards!
