Biography[edit]

Nore Davis was born on April 10, 1984 in New York City. He first started doing stand-up comedy during his teenage years while living in Yonkers, New York.[5] His interest in stand-up comedy was originally a side hobby for him, as he only did open mic nights and performed on college campuses.[6][7] However, after realizing that college wasn't for him, he knew that comedy was the only thing that he wanted to do for a living.[8] Before eventually deciding to work full-time as a comedian, Davis used to work at a gas station, and then later in graphic design.[6][9]

Early on in their careers, Davis was good friends with the then-unknown Amy Schumer.[8] They used to share their comedy ideas together, and when Schumer eventually got her own show on Comedy Central entitled, Inside Amy Schumer, Davis appeared in one of the sketches in the pilot episode.[8][10]

Davis has also made television appearances on Russell Simmons Presents,[11] Last Week Tonight,[12] MTV's Nikki & Sara Live,[9] NickMom Night Out,[13][2] The Artie Lange Show,[14] and had a minor speaking role in HBO's Boardwalk Empire.[6][8][15][16] He has also been seen in many videos on CollegeHumor.[1]

On November 28, 2014, Davis released his first comedy album called, "Home Game."[12][8][17][7]

Davis is currently working with Comedy Central for his own show called, "In Between with Nore Davis."[18]

Personal life[edit]
