Nick Rees was raised in Iowa and drove a tractor during the summers. After earning a degree in creative writing that took him back to Iowa and a job at a gas station, he moved to Chicago to try improv. Nick's girlfriend convinced him to move to Chicago, so she gets some of the blame for all of this. In addition to the University of Missouri, he is also a graduate of the Second City Conservatory and iO. Nick has performed with the Second City Training Center House Ensembles as well as with several groups at iO and The Playground.
