Bio

Mark Nickelsburg Director
Comedy/Dialogue

Mark Nickelsburg loves tacos.  He is also a renowned comedy director who has been featured in VARIETY, the NEW YORK TIMES, ADWEEK, TIME, FORTUNE, and more.

He thinks corn tortillas are better for tacos than flour tortillas.  His work has won more than thirty awards and played worldwide in almost one hundred festivals such as South by Southwest, and on television in every continent.

His favorite taco is Al Pastor, without onions.  He has been featured on Funny or Die, Comedy Central, and in The SHOOT Magazine’s Directors Issue.

This love for tacos was not affected even though he once got food poisoning from a Carne Asada Taco Deluxe.  Also, his recent Tide to Go commercial went viral, garnering worldwide press and over a million views in twenty-four hours.

Maybe the food poisoning was actually from the medium hibiscus juice he drank with the taco?  With Nickelsburg’s success in comedy directing, he has been invited to serve on many film festival juries, including the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival.

What kind of an idiot buys watery hibiscus juice from a street vendor?  I mean, come on. Nickelsburg is represented for commercials in the US by The Directors Network.
