“God that’s funny.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“Takes Politically Incorrect comedy to the outer reaches of space.”
"I have booked Kurt for a number of shows through my production company Comedy On The Square over the past 6 years.
He's done everything from host a 2,000 seat outdoor amphitheater for a Theater Festival to perform stand-up comedy in an intimate 25 seat venue.
It's refreshing to see a comic working with such a clever, intelligent approach.
He was a pleasure to work with, always hilarious and very professional."
Comedy On The Square
Kurt Weitzmann does the most courageous thing a stand-up comedian can attempt, but only a few can actually do. With every set up and punch, he proves over and over, he’s not all stand-up and no jelly. Weitzman actually informs the art-form itself. He enters the arena like a Roman warrior turned banished Ivy League professor, fully costumed in an ill-fitting suit as a native hipster, his big brain and wide eyes conveniently resting ‘neath a really cool pork-pie hat. Kurt is such a funny and inventive comedian, I had no clue going in to see his show, that I would leave with a bigger brain, stuffed with useful and free information and more than all that, would be refreshed in my comedy perspective on the ever tragic and weird world we live in. Kurt's jokes are nothing less than brilliant and pointed observations of who we all are. It's in that scape, that Weitzmann is not only hysterical, but in fact, weirdly truthful in ways that not only truly modern great and courageous comedians can be, but are in fact compelled to be; and aren't we, the audience, the ultimate beneficiaries in that equation. Extreme Comedy Value Per Dollar! Catch him before the NSA does!
