Nato Green was summed up more or less accurately by The East Bay Express as, “erudite and acerbic, a San Francisco-raised father, union organizer, gastronome, bibliophile, and political sparkplug.” He performs on Wednesdays at the legendary alternative comedy show at the Dark Room Theatre, The Business. His first comedy album, The Nato Green Party, through Rooftop Comedy. Nato has been named San Francisco’s Best Comedian by the SF Weekly, Huffington Post, and CBS.
Nato wrote for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FX. Nato is the creator of Iron Comic, the Iron Chef-spoofing comedy game show he co-hosts with Moshe Kasher. Nato’s humor commentaries have appeared in Huffington Post, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Rumpus, and The Bold Italic. Nato toured nationally with W. Kamau Bell & Janine Brito as Laughter Against the Machine. Laughter Against the Machine filmed a tour documentary from the front lines of American controversy.
“Righteous and hilarious, Nato is like finding a shot of bourbon at your co-worker’s stupid vegan potluck.”
–Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket
“Nato is funny, smart, thoughtful, goofy and political. As of now, I suffer no consequences for my steadfast belief that Nato is one of the funniest comics in our country, but I would stage a sit-in. If it fits in between my Ashtanga yoga and zine-making classes.”
–Maria Bamford, Comedian
“Nato Green is the real deal; cogent, hilarious and indispensable.”
–Greg Proops, Comedian, The Smartest Man in the World podcast
“I’ve always tried to provide the soundtrack to the revolution. Nato Green provides the laugh track.”
–Boots Riley of The Coup
