Clean Comedian Nate Bargatze Teases Future Plans, Including Sitcom

By Movieguide® Contributor

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.”

This would not be the comedian’s first attempt at a multi-cam show. He developed a comedy series for ABC in 2018 that failed to make it to production.

“These things don’t work out, and then your stand-up kind of keeps going,” he said. “And so then you just kind of reassess.”

However, things changed since 2018 as Bargatze has become one of the most recognizable faces in comedy, thanks to his clean, family-friendly approach. This year has seen his popularity reach new heights as he set multiple attendance records while on his “Be Funny” tour. His HELLO WORLD special also brought in 2.9 million views during its first month on Prime Video, setting a record on the streaming platform.

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.”

The company launched a YouTube series, THE SHOWCASE, which promotes multiple up-and-coming clean comedians.
