You may not know his name yet…but you will.  Nate Bargatze is gaining audiences in the comedy world for his rare kind of funny: the clean-cut kind!

Nate has had two specials on Comedy Central Presents, and has appeared multiple times on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He was mentioned in Rolling Stone 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.

Nate released his second album, Full Time Magic, in coordination with his Comedy Central Special in May 2015.  It can be downloaded at .

Nate is in Chicago for a few performances October 1 – 3 at UP Comedy Club.  On “The Dinner Party” podcast, Elysabeth Alfano sits down with Nate, a Tennessee native, for some down-home, good Southern food from Honey Butter Fried Chicken to dish on just what makes Nate such a funny guy.
