Home to all things comedy from the Upright Citizens Brigade
Nick Kocher is a writer and performer originally from Atlanta, Georgia. After learning to walk, speak, and take tests he moved to New York, where he attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts studying acting at the Stella Adler Studio and the Experimental Theater Wing. He had a pretty good time. In 2008, he and fellow Atlanta buddy Brian McElhaney joined forces to form a sketch comedy duo called BriTANicK. Under the BriTANicK name, they've put out a series of internet videos that have amassed over 25 million views worldwide and received praise from Gary Oldman, Adam McKay, Roger Ebert and Joss Whedon. Their sketch 'Academy Award Winning Movie Trailer' was nominated for 'Best Viral Original' at the 2011 Comedy Awards. BriTANicK has also run several live sketch shows at UCB, including 2009's "The Infinity Prison" which was voted 'Best Sketch Show of the Year' by Time Out New York. They have performed live at various colleges across the country as well as at the Chicago, New York, and SF Sketchfests and the Chicago Just For Laughs Festival. In 2010, Nick co-wrote and starred in the short film Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses, which went on to be screened at the Slamdance Film Festival and South By Southwest. The film is super weird and you can watch it online. He has appeared in several TV shows and movies including Louie, I Just Want My Pants Back, The Colbert Report, Searching For Sonny and Joss Whedon's upcoming Much Ado About Nothing (which can be seen in theaters in spring of 2013). He also starred in the 2012 ABC pilot Awesometown (which can be seen nowhere). He currently has a job writing for the FOX show The Goodwin Games.
