Natalie Norman is a Toronto-based stand-up comedian, podcaster, storyteller and Jewess.
Natalie hosts a weekly LGBTQ+, feminist friendly show The Crimson Wave at Comedy Bar in Toronto. She recorded her second TV taping in May 2019 for the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and her debut comedy album The Big Reveal is set for release on Howl & Roar this summer.
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 has been among the acts featured at JFL42, and 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 Just For Laughs in Montreal, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, 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.
