Avenue Q Wiki


Nicky is one of the main characters in the musical Avenue Q. He is a 25-year-old Ernie-like slacker and has no job. He lives in an apartment with Rod. He first appears complaining why it sucks to be him- he lives with an uptight roommate. Throughout the show, Nicky tries to urge Rod out of the closet, because he knows that he is gay. This is expressed through the song If You Were Gay. This also gets him in trouble when Rod overhears Nicky calling him a closeted homosexual at Brian and Christmas Eve's wedding, causing him to get kicked out of the apartment.

After living with almost everyone in the neighborhood and subsequently getting kicked out of everyone's homes, he takes a lesson from Gary about Schadenfreude and decides to become homeless. He is seen begging for money from Princeton and others which leads to The Money Song to help raise money for Kate's monster school. After Rod comes out, he invites Nicky to move back in with him. Nicky accepts and introduces Rod to a boyfriend he found for him, Ricky. ("I think I know your type.")



He is a parody of Ernie from Sesame Street
