Nick’s absurdest view and deadpan wit have distinguished his unique style of storytelling and one-liners. To our ears Nick Thune reminds us greatly of Mitch Hedberg, which not surprisingly he lists as one of his inspirations in getting into comedy.
“I’d say 12 percent of you loved that joke, he says, following one math-related bit. “12 percent…I love that number. Other comedians might pull me aside and say, ‘Nick, 12 percent’s not enough, you got to get 100 percent of the audience behind everything you say.’ I don’t look at it that way. I look at it like milk fat percentage. 12 percent milk fat? Astronomical. That’s why I judge all my jokes by milk fat percentage.”
