Vine Comedian Nick Spears Dead at 35, Community Mourns
Comedian and writer Nick Spears died of apparent heart complications Friday. He was 35.
Spears was beloved in the social-media community, particularly by a tight-knit group of comedians and friends on video-sharing platform Vine.
In addition to his social-media and standup comedy, the Los Angeles, Calif. resident was an active volunteer for F*ck Cancer, a non-profit organization that seeks to raise awareness, and end cancer through early medical detection.
Vine sensation and cancer fighter Ryan McHenry became close with Spears via the social network, although the two never met in real life.
“He sent me F*ck Cancer t-shirts, wristbands, stickers and messaged me with some great advice on how to stay well and positive,” McHenry told Mashable via Twitter. “He was so wonderful and kind-hearted, really helped me through a lot … His comedy was unique and hilarious, and I can’t believe he’s gone.”… you can read the original article on Mashable, in full, by clicking here.
