Nick Mortensen was voted "It Indie Comedian for 2009" by comedysnob.tv. He puts out his first DVD called "Nick Mortensen: Living Up to the Hype" in the fall of 2009. He's different from a lot of comedians in that he understands why he is a comedian and what it can mean. Mortensen underwent a genuine enlightenment in 2008/2009 when he began learning everything he could about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
He'll be stepping away from comedy after his DVD hits the selves in the Fall of 2009 to become the filthiest motivational speaker walking the Earth. Some are already calling him the "Tony Robbins for the ADHD crowd". Mortensen's aim is to teach people what ADHD is, show them how they can harness the incredible power of ADHD to create the life they want, and tell the amazing story of how Brett Favre being traded from the Green Bay Packers was a cause set in motion wherein he went from an open mic comedian to theater headliner in 100 days- all because he understood ADHD and the role it had played in his life.
In a business that is full of pretenders and downright frauds, Mortensen is the genuine article. You've never seen anyone like this.
