With a lightning wit and self deprecating humor, Blayr Nias is a comic that is relatable to all walks of life. Unapologetically fierce and funny she covers everything from current events to race and gender relations, never missing an opportunity to dazzle the audience with wordplay and puns. Blayr has a reputation for saying bad things in a nice way giving her the style of “mean clean.”
Hailing from Boston, Ma and graduating from George Washington University with a degree in Theater and Creative Writing, Ms. Nias is a Yankee at heart but living in the South gives her the perfect blend of Northern aggression and Southern hospitality. She performs at comedy clubs, casinos, corporate events, colleges, and even churches and has worked with comedy heavyweights throughout her career such as Marc Maron, DL Hughley, Katt Williams, and she recently opened for Fortune Feimster as she filmed her Netflix special.
Blayr was selected as “Best Comedian” by both Charlotte Magazine and Creative Loafing Magazine, as well as Top 30 Under 30 by Elevate Lifestyle Magazine. She’s performed at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy Festival. Ms. Nias made her television debut on Fox “Laughs” and has also been seen on Comedy Central's “Up Next”, and as a contributor on WCCB News Rising’s “Couch Chat”. The new mom recently released her debut album “Telling Jokes for Two” and you can follow her on social media @gummyblayr.
