Nathan Timmel bills himself as three things: A comedian. An author. And an idiot. The comedian, who’s been spitting out jokes on stage for the past 15 years, says he got his start even earlier — when, as a child, he heard George Carlin’s infamous “Seven Dirty Words You Can’t Say on Television” and ran around shouting them on the playground. Nowadays, he’s performed all across the country, and even made soldiers laugh in Iraq and Afghanistan, although they thought the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders were prettier.
