In a statement on Nemeroff’s Instagram account, his family called him a “comic’s comic” who achieved success both in his native Canada and in the U.S.

\“It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff.

Nick’s dedication to standup comedy was formidable, and produced amazing results,” the statement said.

Nemeroff's family praised "his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy."

Nemeroff’s debut stand-up album, “The Pursuit of Comedy Has Ruined My Life,” was nominated last year for a Juno Award, recognizing Canadian musical artists and entertainers.

Nemeroff also appeared on Conan O’Brien’s talk show and at the Montreal comedy festival Just for Laughs, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Comedy Central’s Clusterfest.

“He leaves behind a large group of dedicated friends spread across the many places he has lived: Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, and Australia,” the obituary said.
