Phoenix escapee Nariko Ott is the most tenacious thing to crawl out of the desert since that biker dude with the baby shoes from Raising Arizona (although not as intimidating.) Since moving to Oregon in 2011, Nariko has been named Finalist in both the 2012 “Willamette Valley’s Funniest Person” contest and the 2013 “Portland’s Funniest Person” contest. He’s performed on the nationally renown Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction showcase, shared the stage with Hannibal Buress and also performed at the 2014 Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Always working, Nariko hosts regularly at Harvey’s Comedy Club and performs at Helium Comedy Club. He’s written for sketch comedy groups in multiple cities, currently travels as a feature comedian all along the west coast and is the Co-Creator/Producer of “Lex Hilaris” a Comedy & Metal Showcase at the White Owl Social Club in Portland. The Portland Mercury said it best, “Nariko Ott has decided that comedy can be metal” (which is a decision he still stands by.) He has very long hair.
