It’s hardly a coincidence that comedian Nick Griffin is a fixture on all of the late night talk shows. “I watched the Tonight Show and Letterman quite a bit when I was young,” he explains, “and was always fascinated by comics and looked for them to be on.”
It wasn’t until he was in college that the thought of being a comedian for a living occurred to him.
At the behest of friends in college, he went on stage at an open mic in his hometown of Kansas City. “I really dug it. I got the bug immediately,” he says. As college drew to a close, he still hadn’t given much thought to a career. “I liked writing, and maybe thought I was going to be a journalist, but I hadn’t really thought about it. It’s lucky I found this. Or a curse. I still haven’t decided.”
