Nick Coffman was born in St. Louis and raised on a football field. Like most kids in football, Nick lacked a positive male role model and thought he would make millions of dollars playing in the pros. He made it onto a division one football team before two knee injuries cost him his dream and his identity, but by some miracle, his mascot-sized noggin was spared from any harm.

Now residing in Chicago, Nick writes half-hour comedies featuring strong female leads caught between two worlds. Nick struggled to let go of the sport, but eventually found the courage to write. With sketch training from Second City Chicago and classes from Roadmap Writers under his belt, Nick made the leap to TV writing and is busy putting reps in on some blank pages. 

When not writing, Nick can be found on Twitch. Tuesdays & Thursdays 8PM CST

Nick also recently started a podcast with his brother. Keep an eye out for new episodes below!

#006 – Speedcap – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Smashing Game Time

Basic Speedcap Rules   With 20 minutes on the clock, the speedcapper will have to run through the synopsis of a game as fast as they can. The reviewer has a checklist of topics and things the speedcapper must cover in that time. In the end, we'll tally the score and see where the speedcaper finished. Nick and Josh will compete in speedcaps to determine who does a punishment after a set amount of speedcaps.    The next punishment: Winner's Choice   Peep the first show down here: https://youtu.be/RoyXvAld5Zo Starting off the next round of speedcaps, Nick recaps another Zelda for the ever picky Josh.    Play along with the checklist – https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mnPMcAAfA6LvxTTcmZ8C7hmSd7RZce-k/view?usp=sharing  Check Nick's final score – https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wsQgnUbyKOPyTRQf2TQxUWsdLT2ja2BA/view?usp=sharing  Thank you to Alex Marvin Clark for our opening theme Hunt Him Down.
