Nate’s Bio:


I’m from Old Hickory, TN and I love the Vanderbilt Commodores.
My father is a former clown turned world class magician, and I have
followed his footsteps into the entertainment business.

Listen, I’m not here to talk about how I have had my own Comedy
Central Presents, or that I have appeared four times on Conan and
recently was one of the first comedians on The Tonight Show Starring
Jimmy Fallon. Did I go on Jimmy Fallon’s Clean Cut Comedy Tour?
Yes. But you already knew that!

Who cares that I performed at Bonnaroo and SXSW. Of course I have
appeared on CMT multiple times and I do remember winning New
York’s Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival in the same year.
I loved every moment.

And yes, I was on two WTF podcast episodes, but who hasn’t been?

Really loved performing for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait five times.

I was mentioned in Rolling Stone Magazing by Marc Maron as a “comic who should be big” and in Esquire by Jim Gaffigan as “one of the top
up and coming comics.” My first album, Yelled At By A Clown made it
onto the Billboard Top Ten Comedy charts for two weeks. But hey, this
isn’t all about me.
