Nathan Dimitroff, Comedian | Mental Health Advocate
Nathan Dimitroff est le seul humoriste bulgaro-acadien du MONDE. He is cleverly silly … or silly clever (the choice is yours) and will cause you to have waves of thoughtful laughter. The infectious energy and particularly effective sense of timing of this singular bearded man nicely captivate the audience. Ce conteur humoriste vous invite à le rejoindre dans le récit de ses nombreuses aventures, dont il le JURE, ne sont pas exagérées… Son parcours scolaire, sa vie familiale, ses expériences vécues, la santé mentale, rien n’est caché (à part son menton sous sa barbe). He hides nothing, other than maybe his double chin with his beard.
