Born the fourth of three children, Nancy Norton craved attention from strangers, began touring as a standup comedian in 1991 and has toured nationally and internationally, headlining clubs, colleges, cruises and USO tours. She is known for performing uniquely funny shows that connect with universal truths through her intuitive, in the moment, high energy, fast paced, somewhat forgetful and engaging style.
Nancy has been a regular at Comedy Works in Denver since 1992. She is one of the founding members of a popular show called, "MentalPause" for women of a certain age and those who love them.
You may have seen her on various comedy showcases over the years, doing standup in clubs and festivals across the country, or on Evening at the Improv on A & E, or in her one-woman show, The Yellowish-Green Girl on PBS and on Nickmom Night Out on Nickelodeon.
Norton has a background as a Registered Nurse and got out of nursing for the same reason most people get into it…to save lives.
Currently, Nancy resides in Boulder, Colorado and is a single-stay-away-from-home mom who works as a standup comedian and keynote speaker.
