At university he performed in - and then directed for three years - the Monash Law Revue (the Melbourne equivalent of the Cambridge Footlights). He formed sketch group Vicious Ha-Sa, who produced 6-part comedy series The Intermissionary Position for Melbourne’s Chanel 31, and had a near-hit with the single Show & Don’t Tell from their boy band parody 40 Foot Flaccid. Nathan performed shows in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival each year from 2000-2004.

As well as performing in many short films both in Australia and the UK, he directed the silent short films Pre-Dinner Cocktails and Entertaining Countess Dracula (with Hungarian gypsy band Vardos – screened in a festival in New York, and a cupboard in Budapest).

In 2010 Nathan relocated permanently to the UK, appearing in fringe theatre, short films, and commercials for Dog’s Trust, Huawei, Stonewall and even a dating website! UK credits include absurdist plays The Client (BAC) and Last Drinks (Cock Tavern Theatre), and Aussie plays The Present (Cock Tavern Theatre) and Cosi (White Bear and King’s Head).

In 2013 he reformed his Australian comedy partnership Jon & Nath (jonandnath.com), with a YouTube channel, and new live show Jon & Nath Like To Party (currently touring the circuit). Jon & Nath were Sketchfest 2016 finalists (‘Best New Act’ and ‘Best Video Sketch’).
