NICOLE BYER is one of the most versatile and recognizable voices in the comedy landscape today. She currently stars as host of Netflix’s hit reality-competition baking series Nailed It, which premiered in early March and has since gained a cult following of viewers trying to re-create their own Pinterest-inspired fails. She can also be seen as producer and star of the scripted comedy series Loosely Exactly Nicole, which debuted its first season on MTV and aired its second on the streaming platform Facebook Watch. The show features her unique brand of confidence and irreverence as she demonstrates the hilarious missteps of what it means to be out on your own for the first time. Byer is also at work on ABC’s untitled Justin Noble comedy pilot and continues to host her popular weekly podcast Why Don’t You Date Me.
Byer was an early standout and fan favorite on MTV’s hit series Girl Code, a strong and smart female-driven comedy series that brings viewers a hilarious how-to manual full of over-the-top tips to push the envelope and open the dialogue about the wonders and woes of womanhood. She is also an Upright Citizens Brigade alum who continues to cement her status as a force in standup comedy, regularly performing in cities across the country.
Previously, Byer received national attention for her Above Average web series Pursuit of Sexiness, which she co-created and starred in alongside Sasheer Zamata. The series followed the adventures of two broke, single, and adorably self-absorbed young women trying to find a good guy in New York City. Her additional film and television work includes Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Lady Dynamite, Party Over Here, BoJack Horseman, and 30 Rock.
She currently lives in Los Angeles.
