NICK LEYDORF: Lawyer by day, stand up by night, Nick Leydorf is comedy’s version of Daredevil. Audacious as he is witty, Leydorf confesses his sins across the country with lawful skill. Always the defender of truth, this comedian aligns his values with everything funny. It’s the little things in life that aid his perspective. Leydorf brings remarkable joy to audiences, all the while lamenting the life of a would-be law student. Lend Nick Leydorf your ear; you won't be sorry you did.
Based out of Lansing, Michigan, Nick has worked with Kyle Kinane, Chad Daniels, Nate Bargatze, Joe Derosa, Alonzo Bodden, Sean Patton and Dave Landau to name a few. He has been a part of several festivals around the country such as Cleveland Comedy Festival, What a Joke Festival, Crossroads Comedy Festival, Border City Comedy Festival, Big Time Garbage Festival, Motor City Comedy Festival, Stoopfest and Gilda's Laughfest.
