Nicole Yates (instructor)

While growing up, Nicole fell hard for her first love: comedy. Whether it was sneaking out of bed late to watch stand-ups on Carson & Letterman, staying up to catch Saturday Night Live or memorizing the TV Guide to ensure she caught all the comedy on the tube for the week: Nicole was hooked. Always the funny kid in the group, when she finally rolled up onto the stage, it fit like a glove holding a ham sandwich.

Nicole hit the ground running and became a mainstay in the Philadelphia Comedy Scene. She performs in every place that will have her (and some that will not!) not only in Philly, but in clubs, rooms and burrito bars all over the country. She ran & hosted the monthly
show The Fighting Burrito Comedy Showcase, performed in Philly’s Comedy Month Girls Show, is involved in the Yard Sale Comedy Showcase & Open Mic, is a writer on the Phit Sketch House Team The Decoy and is a writer on the late night monthly show Two Late with Rob and Joe. She also appeared in a bunch of viral web video videos.

Nicole may take the stage looking a bit like a teenager who just rolled out of bed, however, her jokes about food, kids, pop culture and growing older, hit home with her audiences. She balances the norm of everyday life with oddball thoughts on pop culture and assorted
things that tickle her interest. She’s a favorite among all ages that love to turn the mirror on themselves and laugh. That’s the awesome part, as this was her goal, as a little kid sitting way too close to the TV, soaking in the funny.
