Beth Norton is a 30 something-year-old, stand-up comedian who has lived all over America. She was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California but really found life in 2014 through the Burlington, Vermont comedy scene. Since, she has competed in comedy competitions, featured in local showcases and sat through many open mics. Beth has had the pleasure of hosting for celebrities like Judah Friedlander and Gina Yashere and in 2018 performed in her first festival- Treefort!

Beth is a natural storyteller with an absurdist edge. She spent most of her childhood in the foster care system and has spent most of her adulthood trying to sort that out. Comedy is helping her find her voice. Fellow comedians describe her style as subtle and smart. She earned a BA in Psychology in 2007 and since then has worked as a canoeing instructor, a Montreal-style bagel baker and a craft beer bartender, among other things. She is not sure where she is going with all this...

Now belonging to the Boise comedy scene, Beth frequently hosts at Liquid Laughs and features in local showcases produced by the HAHAffices!  This year she will be a performing and coaching in the 2018 Boise's Funniest Person Competition. In her free time Beth is a 70 something-year-old woman who likes to take long hikes, read books and hang out with her cats.
