Beth Norton is a 30 something-year-old, Stand-up Comedian who has lived all over the country. She found comedy in 2014 in Burlington, VT while working as a waitress at a local music venue, famous for their gravy fries and the band Phish. When she picked up an extra shift as a coat check during the semi-final round of Vermont’s Funniest Comedian Competition, Beth was inspired by the people who took the stage and began to hear a different voice. After a couple of appearances on a mic in her serving apron, barely living month-to-month, she threw down for a 6-week comedy class and has been getting up on stage ever since.
In 2016 Beth made it to the semi-finals of that same competition and hosted for Judah Friendlander at the newly established Vermont Comedy Club. Later that year she made the geographically lateral move to Boise, ID, kept growing and in 2018 she performed in Treefort’s Comedyfort and the 208 Comedy Fest! Beth is a natural storyteller with an absurdist edge and fellow comedians describe her style as subtle and smart. She features regularly around Boise and has recently taken to the road with a couple local headlining treasures. Check the shows tab for upcoming performances.
As a childhood trauma survivor, comedy helps Beth reconnect with the human experience and build confidence. She credits her continued growth to the women in comedy who have supported, seen, inspired and provided opportunities for her. Beth’s comedy goals include writing on a team, supporting as many women in industry as possible and doing stand-up forever.
