Natalie Norman

Natalie Norman is a Toronto-based stand-up comedian, podcaster, storyteller and Jewess. Outrageous, witty, and often political, Natalie hosts a weekly LGBTQ+, feminist friendly show The Crimson Wave at Comedy Bar in Toronto, which in 2015 was chosen by Just For Laughs 42 to be one of the 42 acts. She also produces That Time of the Month in Guelph, Ontario as well as The Future is Female across Canada. In addition to the weekly show, Natalie is the co-host of the Crimson Wave Podcast. The menstruation-themed podcast was included in Blog TO’s Top 10 Toronto Podcasts and named by Toronto Life as one of the city’s most addictive podcasts. The Crimson Wave was also an instrumental force in the Canadian Menstruators’ #NoTaxOnTampons campaign, writing and starring in the viral video to promote and spread awareness on the initiative to remove tax on menstruation products. The tax was successfully removed in July 2015. Natalie has also performed at Sled Island, Guelph Comedy Fest, Women In Comedy Fest, Pop Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Toronto SketchFest, Feminist Arts Conference, Field Trip, NXNE and LadyFest Montreal. Most importantly, Natalie is a Spice Girls enthusiast, who loves talking about her period.
