Kurt Weitzmann, an award winning director and playwright, has been performing comedy for over fifteen years. His act has been seen on Comedy Central, MTV, Clubs and Colleges, numerous comedy festivals, and on the stages of every San Francisco comedy venue ever to come or go.
Kurt began doing stand up at the infamous HOLY CITY ZOO where such personalities as Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Rob Schneider, and Margaret Cho all honed their craft. In between Stand Up performances Kurt founded numerous Bay Area sketch groups, including NERVOUS LAUGHTER which was touted as "Funnier than any given season of Saturday Night Live in the last ten years" by BAM MAGAZINE. He also cofounded Comedy Noir, who hold the distinction of being the only comedy group to perform three different consecutive shows at the prestigious Vancouver Comedy Festival -The Jesus Roast, Hitler Rosast, and The Obama Roast (which was commissioned by the festival).
While in Los Angeles Kurt worked with such comedy luminaries as Dave Thomas (SCTV), Patton Oswalt (King of Queens), Dana Gould (The Simpsons), Kate Flannery (The Office), Tom Kenny (Sponge Bob Square Pants) & Eddie Pepitone, to name but a few. Kurt Weitzmann's comedy sketch album TALENTED is now available on AMERICAN DREAMS RECORDS. In 2010 his short film "Last Call" won best narrative short in the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival.
