Following the continued success of his Netflix special, “The Tennessee Kid,” comedian, actor and writer Nate Bargatze is extending his best-selling Good Problem to Have stand-up tour into 2020. He will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday at the F.M. Kirby Center, 71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre.


Bargatze’s comedy is both clean and relatable, evident in his six appearances on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” following four appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” He appeared on “Conan” four times, was a recurring guest on “@midnight,” and had his own Comedy Central Presents in 2011. Off-screen, Bargatze was part of Jimmy Fallon's Clean Cut Comedy Tour, and has done live shows for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait five times. He regularly performs at Bonnaroo, SXSW, Oddball Comedy Festival, Sasquatch, Clusterfest and the JFL Montreal Comedy Festival, where he’s received critical acclaim multiple years in a row. Bargatze is also in production on a pilot for ABC, which he created and stars in.


Bargatze was featured in Esquire as a “Best New Comedian” by Jim Gaffigan, one of Marc Maron's “Comedians to Watch” in Rolling Stone, one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” for 2015, and as No. 1 on Vulture's “50 Comedians You Should Know” in 2015. His debut one hour special, “Full Time Magic,” premiered on Comedy Central that spring, followed by his debut album, “Yelled at by a Clown,” which reached No. 1 on the iTunes Comedy Charts and remained on Billboard’s Top Ten Comedy Charts for weeks.


Tickets are $35, $49.75 and $149.75 (VIP with meet and greet). Tickets are available online at kirbycenter.org, at the box office at the F.M. Kirby Center and charge by phone at 570-826-1100.
