Nick Nemeroff, who performed at Just for Laughs in Montreal, Canada, and participated in CTV Comedy’s Roast Battle Canada, has died. He was 32.

“Nick’s dedication to stand-up comedy was admirable and produced amazing results. He performed on Conan before the age of 30 and was featured in multiple TV tapings, most recently, CTV’s Roast Battle Canada,” the late comedian’s family wrote via Instagram on Monday, June 27. “He drew acclaim in Canada and the US, becoming both a ‘comic’s comic’ and a hit with crowds who were enamored by his unique cadence, labyrinthine deadpan, and fresh take on misdirection-driven comedy.”

OK, well maybe it is not suspicious. But considering who he is or was, NOTHING is impossible. Yes he had cancer, but so do lots of people.

I am alleging nothing, but to dismiss it this easy is lazy. How hard is it to get a cause of death.
I sigh in your general direction.

Influential theater director Peter Brook dies at 97

Theater and film director Peter Brook has died. He was 97.

Brook's work spanned seven decades and ranged from star-studded Shakespeare productions to radical experiments in theater form. A defining moment in his career was the sensation he created in 1964; a play with a 26-word title seemed to say it all: The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade, or Marat/Sade for short.
