“I like to think of myself as a storyteller, but in joke form,” says comedian Nate Bargatze. “I don’t think I’m a storyteller like Ron White. My longest joke is like two minutes. But now I’m trying to look at a topic from every angle.” The son of a successful magician, Bargatze first got into comedy via improv with a friend. The format wasn’t for him, but he soon discovered standup. These days, he covers subjects that include travel and science. “I don’t believe in science,” he says. “I don’t understand it, so it’s easier to just not believe it.” He gives an example of why he feels this way. “I read where they said cockroaches are 350 million years old. Are they? Or do you know I don’t know how to go figure that out?” Bargatze has logged numerous appearances on The Tonight Show and Conan, and his fan base includes fellow comics Marc Maron and Jim Gaffigan. 18+.
