Nathan made his 8th-grade math teacher laugh so hard, he had to end the lesson early. It was at that moment he knew comedy was his way to bring more joy to the world and shorter math classes to students. Nathan brings a friendly personality on stage while delivering a confidently vulnerable attitude, quick banter, and tightly written bits. His achievements marked him as a rising comic in the Bay Area performing in top venues including the iconic San Francisco theatre, the Fillmore, and became a favorite at the SF Punchline opening for respectable comics such as Josh Blue, Eddie Pepitone, Robert Kelly, and many more. He has performed for numerous organizations and showcased in noteworthy festivals like San Francisco Sketchfest. Nathan decided to advance his comedy talent by moving to New York City where he quickly gained the respect of his peers resulting in regularly performing at the New York Comedy Club, Carolines on Broadway, and other established venues. He also performs and co-produces a show called “Bring Your Friends Comedy” at the Lantern in Greenwich Village inviting top-notch comics from New York City and around the nation. His unique perspective on the most ordinary situations not only elicits laughter but is also critically appreciated by a diverse audience. When he’s not on stage he produces and co-hosts his podcast with his brother Roni Habib called Be Happy What Ever The F*** That Means and helps others discover their own creativity through an interactive joke writing workshop.
“Habib’s ability to so deftly illuminate the lack of logic behind many social mores is evidence of his way with words as well as his understanding of what is rational and what clearly isn’t.” – Good Times Weekly
