In this episode, I was lucky enough to meet up with Natalie Holt. Natalie is a leader in the Pacific Northwest Comedy scene. She produces several shows and runs the famous Comedy Underground Open Mic, the longest running comedy open mic in Seattle. Natalie has appeared at Seattle’s large Bumbershoot festival, the 208 Comedy Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival, and 10,000 Laughs. In this interview we talk about some of the following:
- Natalie’s first stand up comedy experience

- Being a woman in comedy
- How to run a great open mic
- Mentorship in comedy
- Tips to succeed in the PNW comedy scene
I hope you all enjoy!
