“Saturday Night Live” stars are mourning a fellow comedian.
On Monday, Juno award-nominated comic, Nick Nemeroff, suddenly died, according to his obituary page. He was 32.
“It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved brother Nick Nemeroff,” a statement on his Instagram read.
“Nick’s dedication to standup comedy was formidable, and produced amazing results. He drew acclaim in Canada and the US, becoming both a ‘comic’s comic’ and a hit with crowds who were enamored by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy. If Nick was on a comedy show, he was guaranteed to leave with new fans. And he deserved to, because comedy was, in many ways, his life.”

Friends and fans flooded his comment section with condolences. “SNL” stars Sarah Sherman and Chloe Fineman were among the hundreds of comments left under his post.
