Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one. Bob’s classic football routine is a recognized comedy classic and “Morning”, his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. A contemporary of Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Mr. Nelson’s extraordinary talents have been refined by a career that has included multiple appearances on The Merv Griffin Show, The Tonight Show and David Letterman. Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr. Dangerfield’s career. He also has two HBO specials including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson. Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in. Bob has since had supporting roles When Harry Met Sally and also Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters and Twins as well as box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Not as serious as Plato, but lighter than Socrates. Not as edgy as Clinton, but livelier than Nixon. Not as heavy as GWAR, but deeper than Culture Club. Nathan finds humor in everything from making babies to overcrowded prisons, creating comedy that’s intelligent, fun, and engaging (with a sprinkling of raucousness). A talented storyteller, he builds on real-life anecdotes that draw you in before hitting you with the punch line you didn’t see coming.
A 15-year comedy veteran who has headlined comedy clubs across the country, Nathan has: recorded four comedy CDs (with regular airplay on Sirius/XM), visited the Bob & Tom Show several times, and been overseas to perform for American troops nine times—including stops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With a set that’s well-crafted, clever, and genuine, Nathan’s act is a mix of high-brow thinkers and accessible straight-ahead jokes. He keeps audiences on their toes, transitioning seamlessly from loving husband and father to gritty analyst of politics and human nature. Nathan’s not afraid of using his own life, from his oddball father to his diva toddler, to get you laughing.
Likeable and open, Nathan will leave you wanting more jokes, and his Twitter handle.
