Wick began working professionally as a stand-up comedian in his 20’s, in the late 1980’s. He worked clubs on the road (California, Texas, Colorado, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Oregon, and of course his home state of Washington). In the 1990’s he began appearing at the Improv in Los Angeles. Wick stepped away from stand-up when focusing on his independent films, but has always returned to the stage after being away from it. He produced his own stand-up show in Seattle, in 2006, and currently can be found, on a given night, on stage somewhere in the Los Angeles area.
