Nathan Timmel is a 15-year comedy veteran who has headlined comedy clubs across the country, recorded several comedy CDs (with regular airplay on Sirius/XM), visited the Bob & Tom Show three 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. He 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. He’s not afraid of using his own life, from his oddball father to his diva toddler, to get you laughing. By the end of his set, he’ll leave you wanting more jokes (and his Twitter handle).
“Nathan was a big hit at our first comedy charity event. I received dozens of positive comments from those who attended, and several shared that our fundraising event ranks in the top three that they have ever attended in Rochester. Nathan was fantastic and kept everyone laughing. I would recommend Nathan to anyone without hesitation.”

“We held a work Holiday Party, and Nathan was our entertainer for the evening…he did not let us down. I will definitely hire him again. I was crying from laughing so hard, the gal sitting next me told [me] her cheeks were hurting from laughing so much. All night I heard nothing but great things about him and how impressed they were with the show. Thank you Nathan, for making our night unforgettable!”

“After the first half of his show, I wasn’t sure how many more belly laughs Nathan was going to be able to pull out of the crowd, but it never stopped and everyone loved it. We had a blast, and for days afterward people were continuing to reference how hard they laughed and what a great time they had.”

“When I saw you perform at The Funny Bone, I knew you’d be perfect for our fundraiser. ‘Outstanding!‘ ‘A great storyteller,‘ and ‘two thumbs up!‘ are just some of the raves I‘ve heard about your show so far, and I keep getting major kudos for bringing you here.”
