Speaker Spotlight: Nicole Byer is “a star of uncommon charisma” and one of the busiest people in Hollywood

It can be hard for people to determine where they’ve seen NICOLE BYERas Jimmy Fallon gushed when she was a guest on his show – because chances are, audiences have seen her everywhere. From her long-awaited and critically-acclaimed hour-long comedy special on Netflix, titled Nicole Byer: BBW (Big Beautiful Weirdo), to her two reality TV competition hosting gigs – Nailed It! on Netflix, which earned her back-to-back historic Emmy nominations – and Wipeout on TBS, to the plethora of film and TV roles she is known (and loved) for – Byer is one of the busiest people in Hollywood, and her career is skyrocketing. "She is the Nicole Byer of her generation," said The Washington Post. 

As listeners know from her multiple hit podcasts (Why Won’t You Date Me?, Best Friends, and more), the iHeartRadio Award-winning host has a gift for hilarious, authentic conversations that make a major impact with audiences. As Byer shared with the Los Angeles Times about the massive success of Nailed It!, she believes part of the appeal is the message of personal acceptance despite failure: “The whole journey is better than the product.” A profile in Variety described her as “a star of uncommon charisma,” and Byer brings this star power, and levity, to memorable events with audiences of all kinds.
