He began his performance career in 1987 with the physical theater troupe UMO. Now he performs through his business Chameleon Performance.
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) and was voted Seattle Weekly’s Best Comic of 2015 and named one of City Arts Magazines Artists of 2015. Emmett has performed at festivals across the country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival, the Women In Comedy Festival and can be heard on national podcasts like Risk! (storytelling), Put Your Hands Together (jokes) and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction (gross) and has worked with famous and brilliants like Maria Bamford, Dave Chappelle and TJ Miller. Mr Montgomery tells jokes from his heart, usually, his heart is full of hope but sometimes it is full of spiders.
Jet City Improv is one of the longest-running theatrical events in the Northwest. Since 1992 Jet City Improv has been performing improvisational comedy in Seattle and around the Northwest at corporations, colleges, universities, conventions, schools and other organizations. The show features Seattle’s most talented comedians creating unscripted improv comedy completely inspired by suggestions from the audience.
Jet City Improv is a fast-paced and fun audience participation comedy show that is appealing to all ages!
Fremont Philharmonic Orchestra were originally the Freiberg Philharmonium, the Fremont Philharmonic couldn’t get a gig in town, as everyone in the little Alsatian town was in the band. Neighboring villages suspected with so much talent in one place a pact with the devil had been made. When the fire was put out, those wishing to continue playing emigrated to Fremont in the young city of Seattle. But that was a long time ago.
