Here is a bit about Blayr:
Blayr Nias is not your average female comic. She lives by the credo “If you can’t be a good example, then you’ll have to be a horrible warning.” When she hits the stage it’s with manic energy, high octane humor, and her trademark mega-watt smile giving her the nickname “GummyBlayr”. Winning audiences over across the country with a dynamic stage presence, she shares tales of her misadventures as ‘the bad girl next door’.
She has opened for Natasha Leggero, Ralphie May, Broken Lizzard (Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan) Josh Wolf, Tom Simmons, Chris Kattan, Neal Brennan, Chris Franjola, Jon Reep, Jamie Kennedy, Tom Green, and DL Hughley. She has lived in the South for the past 10 years giving her a unique blend of Northern Aggression and Southern Charm.
In May 2013 she won the “Best of the Best” Award for Best Twitter Feed presented by Charlotte Magazine:
She was also voted Top 30 Under 30 by Elevate Lifestyle Magazine in their June 2013 issue:
In September 2013 Blayr was a regional finalist in Comedy Central’s Up Next Comedy Competition. Blayr was honored again by Charlotte Magazine in May 2014, in their Best of the Best Awards issue as Best Comedian. August 2014 Blayr performed on the Festival Stage at the Oddball Comedy Festival in Charlotte, NC headlined by Louis CK and Aziz Ansari. Blayr made her network television debut September 2014 on the new hit Fox showLaughs.
Blayr is the creator and producer of The Almost Famous Comedy Show at The Charlotte Comedy Zone. Running monthly since March 2012, The Almost Famous Comedy Show is a diverse lineup of the area’s rising comedic talents. Charlotte Magazine gave much praise to the show when they reviewed it in March 2013
