NATE CLARK is a comedic actor, writer and voice-over artist, currently performing musical sketch comedy with the Quick & Funny Musicals company at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles. He is a former member of the Groundlings Sunday Company. Nate was drawn to comedy at a young age as a means of coping with his own staggering genius, his bisexuality, and going gray at 20. A friend recently told him that his look “personifies white privilege,” and he is still unpacking that.
Nate works regularly as a voice performer, and he is often recognized as the voice of promos for NPR affiliate 89.9 KCRW. Public radio is an important reminder of how awful things are for some people, which can be very freeing for the rest of us. His commercial clients include Wendy’s, Hewlett Packard, Hardee’s/Carl’s Junior, Mattel and many more. Oddly, he gets hired most often to sound like a dry-witted stoner type, a sort of combination between John Larroquette and Napoleon Dynamite. Whatever pays the bills, right? Recent voice-acting credits include ADHD (Fox), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (CW), and Rachel Bloom’s album Suck It Christmas.
On-camera, he’s appeared in Suburgatory (ABC), Dinner with Friends/Family… (Adult Swim), several things he doesn’t want you to see, and lots of YouTube videos. His video take-down of YouTuber Joey Graceffa, “I Towed Joey Graceffa’s Car,” went viral and received tons of press. (Press like Gawker and the Daily Mail, but nothing like The New York Times. That would’ve been great.) The success of this video prompted him to launch a YouTube channel as a showcase for his sketch comedy, social commentary and original music. The channel has over 5 Million views to date. Wheeeeee!
Nate is an alum of the Fox Writers Intensive, and is the author of several television pilots, including Sugar High which is currently in development with Tom Broeker (Saturday Night Live). His animated series Somewhere In Palm Springs (co-written with his partner Allen Loeb) was featured at the 2015 Palm Springs International ShortFest. It’s about a bunch of gay hipsters who complain about nothing while sipping fruity drinks by the pool. Most of the (many) things Nate writes relate to the small tragedies we all experience each and every day. Tragedy can be found all around us.
As if the above wasn’t enough, Nate is also active in local politics. In 2017 he ran for West Hollywood City Council. He lost, but that’s okay. He now serves on the city’s Human Services Commission, searching earnestly for ways to protect ‘the little guy’ from being f*cked over.
In his spare time, Nate enjoys long walks to the Grove, battling to achieve single-digit body fat, and attending myriad shows/birthday parties/baby showers for friends, even though he’d rather be at home watching something violent on Netflix. Also, he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro a few years ago, and he will work that story into any conversation lasting more than 3 minutes.
