Natalie Holt's comedy career began in Seattle, but  she credits her absurd spirit to her weird and wonderful upbringing in Florida. Onstage, she's a whirl of surreal wordplay who wears her opinionated heart on her sleeve. Her comedy has been described as "an emotional Penthouse letter" with "jokes that almost don't work."  In addition to her work as a producer of Seattle favorite The Comedy Nest, she performs around the nation and has been featured on festivals near (Bumbershoot, All Jane) and far (208 Comedy Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival, 10,000 Laughs).

There are many problems in the world. Luckily we have Simon Kaufman to solve them all for us on stage. Simon Kaufman's performances are a form of social commentary on society. Taking a stoic philosophical viewpoint towards his life, Simon's stand up act is like an orator standing in the Forum of Ancient Rome using his humor as a means of speaking to his fellow countrymen.

Growing up in a Jewish home in an inner-city neighborhood has given rise to a very unique comedy style that people fall in love with. Being the only white guy on many of his little league sports teams has left Simon with a rich understanding of all aspects of the American spectrum that few get to have. From the city to the country Simon's jokes appeal to everybody. Simon Kaufman is a 4th generation comedic actor tracing his roots back to vaudeville, Yiddish theater, and the early days of Broadway. It's the family business. He’s appeared on The Millionaire Matchmaker on the Bravo Channel, The TV show “The 206”, and the movie Silver Skies with George Hamilton and Dick Van Patten.

His comedy is cerebral but not stuffy and therefore works for all types of audiences. His act is about the chaos of life, the over consumption of modern times, and societies lack of common sense. Simon makes you look at yourself and laugh and points fun at our current age of rapid evolution.
