She Asked... Nile Seguin

In our video interview series She Asked, we have interviewed George Stroumboulopoulos. We have coming up in a few weeks, an interview with Jian Ghomeshi, and today we are proud to present our interview with a very funny stand up comic and comedy writer Nile Seguin.

Nile Seguin became a familiar face on The Hour this past season as a member of the comedy writing team. You know him from a few top five segments like this one -
Nile Seguin has put together his top 5 ways to survive a Valentine breakup.

In the interview you hear the voice of Valia asking Nile some of the questions. In an interesting bit of trivia our friend Valia was the first person to interview George Stroumboulopoulos for a newspaper many years ago.

You wont be seeing Nile this season on The Hour I am afraid.
We are going to miss him there so much! It won't be the same...
To see him live here is a list of his upcoming gigs

Good riddance.

I'm kidding!
I'm happy for Nile.
He's obviously gone on to much better things.

babara

you really should consider spiffing up the place a bit before George comes back

maybe a new headline graphic
wouldn't hurt

at least Nile doesn't have to play straight man to George any more

didn't you like my line about

free gum shipment for Hour audience delayed. George walks Much better.

Looks like you had fun in the interview as well, Barbara. He cracks me up!

If he ever decides to bust through the Quebec border and come east, I will definitely be in the audience.

Nile is so easy to talk to and I have to give him the credit for making this interview so much fun.
You tell the people that book comedians in your area that they should book Nile at any cost!
:-D

The interview series is a pleasure to do and we hope to interview more people from The Hour in the future.
