Drinking Coffee with Nick: Interview with Nick Ceppaglia

Nick Ceppaglia is a Central Californian turned Austinite who spends most of his hours at the gym. He often posts videos of himself lifting heavy shit at 4:20am. 

When he’s not busy getting more swole than he already is, Nick is doing standup or hosting the mini interview show, Drinking Coffee with Nick, with a different local comic (or his cat, Steve French) as a guest every week. 

Featured guests have included Jared Nathan, Ellis Aych, Casey Rocket, Jason Rouse, Darian Irwin, Tre Pack, Molly Vivent, and Ehsan Ahmad, to name just a few.

What's the worst day job you've ever had?

The worst job I ever had was working as a corner transport for a mortuary company. I had to go to the place where people died and wrap them up and put them in body bags and deliver them to the morgue or funeral home.

How long have you been doing comedy?

8 years

Have you lost a partner because of comedy?


Favorite comedy movie of all time

Fight club

Is everything allowed to be joked about?


Tell us about your worst bomb.

One time I bombed in a club full of about 250 people. There was a lot of traffic get into the video and I showed up about 10 minutes before the show started. Upon my arrival I was informed that I would be opening up the show. I got on stage and did my time, and it was received with nothing but blank stares and glares. I had no idea what was going on or why nothing was working. When I got off stage, I went to the bar to get a beer, and as I’m sitting there, wondering why it went so terribly, a couple slides me a note across the bar that simply reads ”great job, keep going. Catholic school fundraiser probably not the best audience for your material.”
