Straight out of Old Hickory, Tenn., Nate Bargatze has become one of the hottest stand-up comedians on the circuit over the past half decade, selling out arenas across the country on a regular basis.
It’s a “Nice Problem To Have” and he brings his tour of the same name to the historic Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne on March 1.
Without current avenues of entertainment, Bargatze might be just another comedian traveling from club to club just trying to make a living.
But Bargatze found fame thanks to Sirius, Spotify, Pandora, and Netflix.
While his 2014 Comedy Central special put him on the map, as did traveling on Jimmy Fallon’s “Clean Cut Comedy Tour,” it was Netflix’s half-hour standup special The Standups that catapulted him into the mainstream.
A second special, the hour-long The Tennessee Kid, was released last year on the streaming giant and has led to future opportunities in movies and network television.
But for now, Bargatze is content travelling with new material that has been described as more mature than previous subject matter yet every bit as funny as everything he has done in the past. Expect routines based around real-life scenarios delivered in a way that will leave you in stitches the whole evening.
