This week Andy Grant is joined by comedian, author, and idiot, Nathan Timmel, who stops by to talk about life, comedy, the road, love winning over laughs, things too sweet to be funny and much, much more.
“Not everyone is going to like you, so let it go. Elsa that shit.” ~Nathan Timmel
Nathan Timmel is a stand-up comedy veteran, masterful storyteller, and headliner with over a decade of experience behind the mic. Nathan finds the absurdity in everything from making babies to overcrowded prisons, creating comedy that’s intelligent, fun, and engaging (with a sprinkling of raucousness).
Topics Covered Include:
- When you meet someone, and they discover you are a comedian, do you notice their expectations of you change?
- Were you always the class clown growing up?
- How did you end up as a professional comedian?
- Is it a hard job making people laugh?
- What are some of the biggest myths people in your audience might have about professional comedians?
- What’s the funniest thing about being a man?
- Does any single joke stand out as a horrible bomb?
- Is there anything about being a man that can’t be joked about?
- Is the idea of “too soon” something you deal with on an ongoing basis?
- Subjects Nathan won’t touch.
- What makes men so goofy?
- You have written quite a few books, which ones stand out to you as worth reading?
- You’ve done a number of shows for the US troops abroad, how are those different?
- The best compliment Nathan’s ever received.

Nathan Timmel: 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.
