Nick DeMarco started improvising in first grade when Sister Veronica exclaimed, “Nicholas, it was you who put those sharp tacs on my chair!” Nick immediately replied, “Yes, and if you look closely at them, you will see I initialed each one.” Since that day, Nick and Sister Veronica knew he would have a career in improvisation.
