Nate is originally from Old Hickory, TN and currently resides in NYC. His father is a former clown turned world class magician and Nate has followed in his footsteps in the entertainment business. Bargatze has had his own Comedy Central Presents, has appeared three times on Conan, performed at Bonnaroo in 2010, and appeared on CMT multiple times. He won New York’s Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival both in 2010. Nate wrote for Spike’s Video Game Awards, has performing for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait five times and just recently was mentioned in Rolling Stone Magazine by Marc Maron as a “comic who should be big” and in Esquire by Jim Gaffigan as one of the top up and coming comics in 2012. His first album, “Yelled at by a clown” was released Sept. 18, 2012. It is great. You should buy it now:
“Nate Bargatze is going to be huge and this album is proof. 52 minutes of classic comedy done right. A fresh and innocent take on story-driven stand-up, 100% unedited. Highly recommended to anyone reading this sentence.” – A Special Thing Records
