Nicholas Ivan Thune (born December 8, 1979) is an American actor, comedian, and musician.
Life and career
Thune was born in Seattle, Washington, to parents Erik and Cindy Thune, and grew up in Redmond. He has one sister and twin brothers. At age 24, Thune moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in stand-up. His early stand-up shows focused on wordplay while he played the guitar, which he has said was used as more of a prop than to create musical comedy. He has performed on The Tonight Show eight times, and was featured in a Comedy Central Presents special in 2007.
In February 2009, Thune performed at the DTD Reality concert at the University of Southern California.
Thune's debut album, Thick Noon, was released on February 23, 2010 by Comedy Central Records.
Thune's first hour-long stand-up special, Nick Thune: Folk Hero, premiered on Netflix in February 2014. The special was later released on CD and vinyl.
His second hour-long special, Good Guy, premiered on December 22, 2016 on NBC's Seeso platform. The special was filmed in October 2016 in Portland, Oregon. Much of the special was based on the thoughts Thune had prior to having his first child. The special is a change in style for him, as he no longer used his guitar throughout the performance. He first started performing without his guitar after breaking his arm in Tampa, and while continuing work without being able to play the guitar, he realized he enjoyed being on stage without it.
Thune was cast as a lead in the 2010 NBC pilot for Beach Lane starring opposite Matthew Broderick. However, the pilot was not picked up as a series. He has since made guest appearances on the comedy programs Traffic Light and Happy Endings in 2011, and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 in 2012.
Thune worked on a pilot in 2016 with his creative partner Kevin Parker Flynn, Holy Sh*t, a workplace comedy about a small church avoiding a mega-church takeover. The pilot was produced by Mila Kunis' production company.
Thune had small roles in the movies Knocked Up and Unaccompanied Minors. In 2017, Thune starred in Dave Made a Maze, playing the titular character. He also starred in the film People You May Know, directed by Sherwin Shilati.
Thune and his wife have one child.
