“[Montgomery] works that high-tension wire between the pure/lovey and the awful/wicked. That’s where comedy lives…” – Brendan Kiley (Theatre Editor, The Stranger)
“Comedy It Boy” – City Arts Magazine
Emmett Montgomery is a comedian/storyteller who was made in Utah but has lived in Seattle for most of the 21st century and has been failing beautifully on and off the stage for over a decade. When he is not wandering the country telling jokes and falling in love with America, he produces local shows that focus on building community, pushing the limits of what it means to be a performer, and celebrating the unique beauty of the city he lives in (Weird and Awesome with Emmett Montgomery, The Magic Hat). Emmett was part of the top 100 in NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season 9 (2015). He performs at festivals across the country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival and the Women In Comedy Festival and can be heard on podcasts like Risk!, Put Your Hands Together and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction and has worked with famouses and brilliants like Maria Bamford, Dave Chappelle and TJ Miller. Mr. Montgomery has a lot of hope in his heart, he also has a lot of nightmares, he writes and tells jokes about both those things. Pictured at right and below: Emmett Montgomery; Photo: Adam Boender.
