The Paramount Theatre

Travis Nelson

Travis was raised where Kurt Cobain learned to smile, in Grays Harbor, near the rainforests of Washington State. The lack of sunshine and abundance of caffeine fostered his obsessive personality. With an act that intertwines real personal stories and experiences with absurd and imaginative meanderings, he invites the audience to escape into the sometimes dark but always lighthearted playground of his psyche.

Travis has made a name for himself performing across North America, bouncing between comedy clubs, theaters, colleges, cruise ships, and a million different bar gigs. Travis has performed in the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, the Westside Comedy Showdown in Santa Monica, won “Best of the Fest” at the Burbank Comedy Festival, and recently made it into the semi-finals round of the World Series of Comedy as one of the top 8 comics out of 101 selected for the Main Event.
