NICK & CHARLES are a comedy forward directing team based in Los Angeles. After moving to LA from Florida State University (where they met), Nick and Charles began making strange and unique comedy shorts for platforms such as Dan Harmon’s ‘Channel 101.’ Their combined writing, VFX, and directing skills drew the attention of Funny Or Die where under the mentorship of comedy titans Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, they honed their craft successfully delivering dozens of hit videos and branded content.
As former staff writer/directors at Funny or Die they helmed many of the site’s most popular projects over the last few years including the legendary sketch “Don Cheadle as Captain Planet” and the “HUVR Tech” hover-board prank. Both projects have garnered tens of millions of views. They’ve worked with some of the most iconic actors of our generation including Jim Carrey, John Goodman, Marion Cotillard, Gerard Butler, and Charlize Theron just to name a few. Since leaving FOD, they have directed projects for Comedy Central, ABC, Adult Swim, and IFC. Their recent Adult Swim special “Lords of Synth” made waves on the internet and beyond.
