Nick Callas is a multi-hyphenate comedian based in the Big Apple, whose expertise ranges from stand-up, sketch comedy, writing, filmmaking, rap, and even comic book art. Callas’ defiance of the expectations of stand-up bleeds into his sets as he will often be found kicking the air, banging his head against the wall, and hopping up onto the stool whose only purpose typically is to hold a capless water bottle. The comedian’s distinctive style is reminiscent of his idols Jim Carrey and Eddie Murphy.

Callas’ Saturday Night Live heroes have not only influenced his stand-up, but they’ve also greatly influenced his career. So much so that Callas earned the opportunity to tour with many storied SNL cast members including Colin Jost, Dana Carvey, and Tracy Morgan. Inspired to do sketches, Callas has made and starred in multiple shorts featured in San Francisco’s International Film Festival, Comedy Central, and Cracked.

Apart from traditional comedy successes, Callas’ shorts, characters, stand-up, and even rap songs have gone viral on TikTok and Instagram. In addition to his individual success, Callas is a cast member and co-founder of the highly successful TikTok comedy group American High Shorts, whose hilarious videos have garnered them over one million followers.
