THE COME UP with Nik Whitcomb provides a unique opportunity for the audience to spend some quality time with me and other working artists as we share space and take a moment to connect through stories of trial, success, pain, and victory on our artistic journeys. The viewer also gets a chance to hear and understand how our artistic work is fueled by the larger conversations happening in the world and meet the artists and humans that will be making major moves in the industry and leaving their mark on history.
