Comedian Nate Bargatze coming to Duluth
The Tennessee standup, whose routine is described as "clean and relatable," will be at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center on Oct. 20.
DULUTH — Nate Bargatze, a Tennessee comedian who's a staple of late-night TV talk shows, will bring his humor to the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center's Symphony Hall for a show Oct. 20.
Bargatze, whose style is touted as "both clean and relatable" in a news release announcing the show, has released two Netflix specials, the most recent of which ("The Greatest Average American," 2021) saw an associated audio release land a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album. He's also appeared on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon at least 10 times and hosts a podcast called "Nateland." The comic promises all-new material for the "Raincheck Tour" he's bringing to the DECC.
"His comedy’s starting point has always been about his bumbling, clueless onstage persona," wrote Aditya Mani Jha in a review of his latest Netflix special for the website Dead Ant. "With Bargatze, looking casual and even unsure of himself is part of the shtick; it cloaks the careful, meticulous way he develops dovetailing themes across an hour of comedy."
While in town, Bargatze can compare Duluth to the identically-named city in Georgia, where he filmed his first Netflix special, 2019's "The Tennessee Kid."
Tickets ($39.75–$79.75) go on sale to the public Friday at 10 a.m. For more information, see decc.org.
