Comedian Nikki Payne doesn’t hold anything back in hilarious stand-up act

by on January 24, 2014


Known for her sharp tongue, engaging charm and trademark lisp, Nikki Payne will have audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter during her act at the Fredericton Playhouse on Saturday, February 8 at 7:30 p.m.

On her current tour, Payne is addressing all the frustrations, anxieties and failures that most people encounter in their everyday lives. She finds ways to express the things everyone thinks at one point or another, but which most people wouldn’t say out of fear of getting fired or arrested! This is one stand-up show that might actually be better than therapy.

Since moving west from her trailer park in Nova Scotia, a lot has happened to Payne. Her hilarious, no-holds-barred routine has earned her multiple Canadian Comedy Awards and Gemini nominations. Most recently, Payne was nominated by the Canadian Screen Awards in the Best Actress in a Featured or Supporting Role in a Comedy Series for her work on CTV’s Satisfaction.

Payne has travelled the world to perform at major comedy festivals like Kilkenny’s Cat Laughs, The Las Vegas Comedy Festival and Montreal’s Just for Laughs, where she has had the honour of playing the Talk of the Fest shows twice.

She has also become well known for her television appearances. Payne has been on a number of Canadian programs, including CBC’s Made in Canada and The Best of Just for Laughs; the wildly popular MuchMusic show Video on Trial; and on CTV’s Comedy Now,Comedy Inc and her very own special, Nikki’s Funtime Show.

The Fredericton Playhouse is also hosting an Experience More! activity. Following the show, ticketholders are invited to stick around for a post-show conversation with Nikki Payne to chat and find out how she comes up with all her zany ideas.

Tickets for Nikki Payne are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at
