Comedian Nate Bargatze Launches Family-Friendly Content Company

By Movieguide® Contributor

Nate Bargatze is growing his comedy empire as he launches The Nateland Company, a production company that highlights up-and-coming comics following in his family-friendly footsteps.

“The Nateland Company is committed to producing high-quality content that inspires and entertains while upholding values of respect, kindness, and inclusivity. With a focus on laughter, heartwarming stories, and relatable characters, we aim to foster meaningful connections and provide positive experiences that families can enjoy together,” Bargatze said.

The company’s debut project, THE SHOWCASE, highlights smaller comics rising through the entertainment ranks. The show’s roster includes Mandal, Donnie Sengstack, Mr. Derick, Jim Flannigan, Renard Hirsch, Alex Velluto, Mal Hall, Jen Fulwiler and Luca Ferro. 

Bargatze directed the six-episode series, which is releasing on YouTube every week. THE SHOWCASE is also available in an audio format on every major podcast format.

Bargatze’s company has also produced three full-length comedy specials, set to release later this year: MIKE VECCHIONE: THE ATTRACTIVES, GREG WARREN: THE SALESMAN and JOE ZIMMERMAN: CULT CLASSIC.

The “Nateland” podcast, a show hosted by Bargatze, Aaron Weber and Dusty Slay, will also now be produced by Bargatze’s company. The podcast is one of the top comedy offerings in the sphere and is approaching 200 episodes.

Bargatze, meanwhile, has not slowed down as he continues his “Be Funny” tour. 

This tour continues to break records as the comic’s popularity grows. In April, Bargatze broke the attendance record at his home state’s Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, selling out to 19,365 people. 

At the end of September, he sold out the Delta Center in Salt Lake City to 32,638 people across the weekend. 

Deadline reports Bargatze “also recently signed to Universal Music Group Nashville as the flagship comedian under its new Capitol Comedy label.”

Movieguide® previously reported:

Comedian Nate Bargatze had everyone in stitches when he explained why his Nashville Arena attendance record would never be broken.

Bargatze broke the venue’s all-time attendance record during a comedy set earlier this year, selling out to 19,365 people. The previous record, set by country star Morgan Wallen, was 19,292 and had been set only a month before Bargatze broke it.

Wanting to keep the record for a much longer time, Bargatze stole a chair from the arena on his way out, lowering the space’s capacity.

“He cracked everybody up when he told us it was a sold-out crowd at Bridgestone Arena and by taking a chair nobody could ever break his record,” professional golfer Brandt Snedeker said at the 2023 Sneds & Friends Pro-Am golf tournament. “That’s pretty much what I expected out of him.”
