Nancy Norton Talks Shop

Nancy Norton is a very funny person.  She has been a comedian since 1992, and has worked on TV and in clubs all across the country. Also, she happens to be a really big deal in her hometown of Denver, Colorado.  Nancy Norton is also a very fun human. I loved having her on the podcast.

We talked about so many things.  Too many to cover here — I totally encourage you to listen to the recording.  But here are a few highlights.

• Nancy did comedy virtually during the pandemic and has a really cool set up. Wait ’till you hear her sound effects.

• She has won two massive and prestigious comedy contests.  Seattle…but also Boston where she was the first female winner. Ever.  That’s a super cool credential.

• Hearing about how the contests work was so fascinating.  Hearing how she managed her time — and her nerves — and what she thought put her over the top was super interesting. Among other things, it turns out Nancy is really smart.

• Nancy Norton is also a motivational speaker, where she draws on her experience as a single mom, a nurse (she keeps her credentials up!) and as a comedian to help her audiences better deal with life, their jobs, and their relationships.

• She talked about being an older comedian. (She’s been working in comedy for a long time.)

• She talked about coming out as a lesbian in the ’90s. And how she came out on Evening at the Improv before Rosie and Ellen…and she is crazy proud of that, her ability to be vulnerable … And how that changed things with her mom.

• She CHOSE to not work on national TV because of her Mom. Wow.  What a story.

In the end it was confirmed: Nancy Norton is awesome.  She’s warm, kind, smart, thoughtful, empathetic, and …as we’ve said… Very very funny.

Thanks for joining me, Nancy.  It was a hoot!
