Nick Gertonson

My 10 year old cousin took this picture on Christmas Morning.

I'm Nick, and this is my website. I'm an actor, improviser, and amateur moped driver. This site shall serve as the official hub for all three of these passions.

I perform regularly with "Big Judy" at iO Chicago. Check out some of our upcoming perfomances!

About Me

I am originally from from Crystal Lake, Illinois - an angsty little suburb out near the more notable, but much less fun, Rockford, Illinois. I attended Crystal Lake Central High School, and later Northwestern University, where I graduated with a BA in Theatre and Creative Writing.

I have had some very wonderful theater experiences over the years. One of my college improv groups, Mee-Ow, was invited by Jeff Garlin to perform alongside Aubrey Plaza, Brett Gellman, and himself at the Traverse City Comedy Festival in 2010. During that time, I also had a short film premier at the Campus Movie Fest in Los Angeles, California.

After college, I immediately began taking classes at iO and The Second City Conservatory. I am a proud graduate of both programs, and can now be seen performing at the iO Theater with the iO house team, "Big Judy." I'm very excited to begin the next chapter of my career.
