Nick Martinez

In 2007, Nick moved in with random actor/waiter roommates in a tiny house just below the 101 in Los Angeles, California. Almost as a rite passage for an incoming LA resident, he went with his new friends to see an improv show at iO West theater in Hollywood. For nearly an hour, two women created a complex world full of varied and nuanced characters on the spot. Nick's mind was completely blown, and he was hooked.

The thought of getting onstage himself terrified Nick, so in 2008 he signed up for classes and soon started performing with his first improv troupe, I Hate Arthur. Nick left the scene for a period, but in 2014 after a cross-country move, he reentered the improv world as a student at Washington Improv Theater and joined WIT Harold team Wallawoo. Since then, Nick has been an active member of the DC improv community, performing around town and producing a monthly show called Improv Pop-Up for several years.

He is currently a member of WIT ensembles Madeline and Improv Actually and performs regularly with his indie teams: Bottom Shelf, Nik, and Latinx States of America.

Nick strives to be the best plant dad he can be but often leaves his green babies behind as he relentlessly searches for the best beaches in the world. He is a semi-professional photographer and a very professional Gemini, just in case you’re looking.
