Clean Comedian Nate Bargatze Celebrates Milestone Year

By Movieguide® Contributor

Clean comedian Nate Bargatze has been named Consequence’s 2023 Comedian of the Year.

“There’s no doubt that 2023 was a milestone year for Bargatze,” Consequence wrote via Yahoo, citing his HELLO WORLD special, which racked up 2.9 million views in its first month on streaming, plus his hit “Be Funny” Tour.

The comedian even broke the attendance record at Bridgestone Arena in his hometown of Nashville. 

“My first visit to Bridgestone Arena was to watch a Nashville Kats arena football game with my family and now wife and I have been going since they opened,” he said of the milestone. “When I started comedy, I would find myself daydreaming about coming home to play Bridgestone, but never really thinking it would happen. It will take me a while to wrap my head around it. All the people coming to the show, I can never repay you for allowing me to get to this point. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you.”

Bargatze also hosted SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE this year, where both his monologue and sketch performances drew rave reviews. 

Vanity Fair wrote that he fit “seamlessly” into the comedy show and praised his “laconic and straightforward” delivery style. 

Consequence’s report continued, “In addition to his standup tours and specials, he hosts ‘The Nateland Podcast’ under the umbrella of his The Nateland Company, a platform he uses to produce and present specials from other comedians. The core of Nateland is similar to the core of Bargatze’s comedy: humor that everyone, across age demographics or media preferences, can enjoy together.”

Fox News reported that the comedian keeps routines clean because “I don’t want to disappoint my parents.”

“I just can’t imagine cursing in front of your parents,” he said. “Still, even now, I’m 43-years-old and I still just couldn’t do that. So that’s how I write. I think I write my comedy to — a lot of it is to make my parents laugh. I want them to be proud and be like, ‘Oh, come watch my son do comedy,’ and not be offended by it. I just don’t have that in me to want to offend someone or make someone feel bad.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Bargatze’s plans for the future:

After hosting SNL in October, comedian Nate Bargatze has a new dream of creating a sitcom and shared what he hopes to achieve through his comedy banner, The Nateland Company.

“SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE did wake something up. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but a multi-cam sitcom, I do think that’s missed right now,” Bargatze said. “Those are very simple to watch, and that’s why the old ones – FRIENDS and all these ones – are still being watched by generation after generation.”

Bargatze has also upped his production game, launching The Nateland Company in October, a comedy banner he hopes can be the home to many comedians in the future. Its creation was inspired by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison banner, through which Sandler produced most of his movies.

“With Nateland, the goal of it was that…as we start acquiring other stuff and trying to eventually build out a world, I just want people to know if Nateland is attached to it, you can know kind of what it’s going to be,” Bargatze explained. “I’m not saying it’s all going to fit everybody’s demands or whatever, but if you like my comedy, it’ll fit along those lines, and I think it’ll be fun.”
