When but six years old, Nathan conned his sweet little grandmother into buying him a record album. The cover pictured a man picking his nose, and what’s funnier to a six-year-old than boogers? That album was George Carlin’s “Class Clown,” and soon Nathan was the only child running around the playground shouting the “Seven Dirty Words You Can’t Say On Television.” Thus began Nathan’s descent into a career in stand up comedy.

Since those auspicious beginnings, Nathan has: performed at comedy clubs across the country, recorded several comedy CD’s—two of which receive regular airplay on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio—thrice visited the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show, been overseas for American Troops eight times—hotspots such as Iraq and Afghanistan included—and performed for international audiences in locations such as Seoul, South Korea. In 2009, nine newspapers wrote promotional articles about Nathan, and on two occasions he was the sole guest on Iowa Public Radio’s “The Exchange.”

To his mother’s delight, Nathan put his degree in English into use by writing of his exploits as a comedian. He has been lucky enough to find his musings published most prominently in the worldwide military newspaper Stars & Stripes. He currently writes for Rooftop Comedy, posting a mix of original work and interviews with comedic celebrities such as Rob Corddry and Margaret Cho.

Cutting past partisan politics and getting down to matters we all agree on is one of Nathan’s many skills as a wordsmith; though the media may try to separate us as a people, Nathan is here to unite all using one weapon: the sound of laughter.

A storyteller with the ability to hit with one liners, Nathan sticks close to home when it comes to material. He talks of his tours overseas, his daughter’s poopy diapers, and his experiences in getting his wife pregnant (which is material she doesn’t always appreciate).

Nathan currently lives near Iowa City, Iowa, with his wife, daughter, one cat, and a puppy named “Kitty.”

  • Michael Thorne
    May 20, 2016 at 7:30 PM Michael Thorne

    Michael Thorne is an amalgam of culture and white trash raised on a greasy silver spoon in a borough of Minneapolis aptly nicknamed “Nordeast”. He has brought his hilarious observational insights on evolution, (or lack thereof), human relations, marriage & parenthood to backwoods barrooms, colleges, casinos and A-list comedy clubs from coast to coast & border to border. Michael grabbed the attention of LA bigwigs at one point who urged him to leave Minnesota to further his career. “You’re the funniest thing out of the Midwest. Now get out of the Midwest.”

    But Michael favors the Midwestern family life. He will take you on a wild and hysterical tour of the minefield that is his life. Michael has shared the stage with comedy legends Steven Wright, the late Bill Hicks and the late Mitch Hedberg.

    Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives at home, a divorced daughter and three grand-kids. This gives her a full portfolio of material to draw from.  A lot of people ask Chris why she began a career in comedy so late in life. Well, it’s not a coincidence that she started immediately after her daughter began having babies! Chris does not like to baby-sit! Sure, traveling around the country telling jokes to drunks in smoky nightclubs was not the most practical way to get out of baby-sitting, but she decided it was definitely worth a try. (It was either that, or go to truck-driving school and she hates the way she looks in flannel shirts! ) So far, this desperate attempt to distance herself from family obligations has worked out quite nicely. She’s come a long way from her early years in comedy.

    She currently headlines in some of the top clubs in the country and has become a favorite at “The Comedy Stop” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America. She appeared in six episodes and made it all the way to the finale where it came down to only 5 finalists. Ok, she didn’t win—-but just ask anyone who has seen her perform and they will tell you that she is definitely one funny mother!
