Nick Peine was a comedian and actor who made a name for himself in the world of comedy at a precociously young age, before taking on comedic acting roles in both film and television. Born and raised in Minneapolis, MN, Peine began going to open mics when he when he was only 17 years old. Before long, he had blossomed from an aspiring funnyman into a working standup comedian. Peine's first acting gig was an appearance in the final season of the Boston University-set sitcom, "Welcome Back, Brotter" (butv10, 2009-2012). From there, he moved beyond the confines of the campus, and began landing roles on nationally broadcast sitcoms, including "Marry Me" (NBC, 2014-15), "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011-), "The Middle" (ABC, 2009-2018), and "Son of Zorn" (FOX, 2016-17). Peine's first film appearance was as Rodney, alongside Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, and Jennifer Aniston, in the raunchy corporate comedy "Office Christmas Party" (2016). 2017 proved to be Peine's busiest year yet, with appearances in the dystopian tech thriller "The Circle" (2017), the comedic web series "Astrid Clover" (YouTube, 2014-), and the septuagenarian crime comedy "Just Getting Started" (2017). Peine landed his first series regular gig with the irreverent high school sitcom "A.P. Bio" (NBC, 2018).
