From a press release:

It was announced today that Stand-Up Global will present comedian, actor, and radio host Nick Di Paolo live at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, April 28 at 8 p.m. as part of his Nick Is Right Tour.

Tickets, which are $28 in advance or $33 the day of the show, plus fees, go on sale this Friday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale is now underway.

In this time of watered-down comedy, Nick Di Paolo’s brutally honest performances remind us of what great stand-up should be – funny, socially relevant, and a little bit reckless.

His strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio. He hosted his own show on New York’s 92.3 Free FM, co-hosted “The Nick & Artie Show,” and presently hosts “The Nick Di Paolo Show” on SiriusXM Faction Talk and “The Nick Di Paolo Podcast.”

Di Paolo has performed on “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and “Conan.” He has twice been nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s “The Chris Rock Show.” He has also had three half-hour stand-up specials on Comedy Central; a Showtime special, “Raw Nerve;” a self-released special, “Another Senseless Killing” and, most recently, “Inflammatory.” He also starred on “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and was a stand-out on many Comedy Central Roasts.

Not limited to stand-up, radio, and writing, Di Paolo has had acting roles on FX’s “Louie,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “The Sopranos,” “Cop Show,” and the critically-acclaimed “Horace and Pete,” as well as many other sitcoms.
