Recently, I was talking to acomedian Nate Bargatze about his movie “Mommy,” and how he relates the movie to mothers. Bargatze is the funny part of the comedy duo. He has been performing for years, and his act always leaves me with a smile on my face. The real problem with him is that he doesn’t get enough credit. As a stand up comedian it can be tough to get comedy actors to pay attention to you, but it’s worth it in the end.
Recently, Nate Bargatze wife, Autumn Reeser, filed for divorce from him. The two had been married for four years and, as everyone in Comedyland knows, things rarely go the way you want them to in the marriage department. This is not an uncommon occurrence in Comedy because most comics are really just trying to make it in this business. So, when things don’t go their way in comedy, they blame the woman, fall back to their “stage mom” persona and try to make up.
But, not this bargain Bargatze. She is the one who asked for the break. Late night TV was not going the way he wanted it to. So, he had a talk with Autumn and it turned out that this is not the end of it. It was just another day in the office for him, but it turned into a pretty good episode of stand-up comedy. In fact, I would say it was better than what he did last week on CNN.
It is easy to understand why so many people are contacting me about the Nate Bargatze wife story. In this case, we have acomedian, not a real life stand-up comedian, making a personal connection with a divorced mother who is trying to get her former lover to reconsider getting back together. This is not typical entertainment industry story lines. Most celebrities will do anything for a big paycheck, but not an entertainer who has to rely on coming off as an afterthought.
Also, this is not the first time that Nate has performed at an eBay auction. This is actually his third show at the venue, so I think it safe to assume that he sells like crazy at the place. If you have been to the site, then you probably saw him performing one of his songs, or saw him perform one of the albums from his recent album. Well, now we have the chance to see him back at a netflix special.
What makes this show really special is that he will be discussing his new CD that he will be releasing called “Pee-Wee World: The Adventures of Nate Bargatze”. In this disc, he will talk about his life, his comedy career, what it was like being in the Body Shop, and of course, how he met his wife. It is a funny, humorous comedy that everyone should enjoy.
Another one of my favorite comedians, Nick Diaphragmo, is also set to appear on the Tonight Show. He is another funny stand-up comic that everyone should look up to. We have known Nick for a few years, since he was a founding member of the Just For Laughs festival in New York City. His appearances have always been hilarious, and I am sure that fans of the two will truly enjoy the wit that he brings to every stand-up comedy show that he appears in. He has a unique sense of humor, and it will come across on his show.
This is not the end for Nate Bargatze, or for the late Nick Diaphragmo either. I would expect many more opportunities for both of them, and they will both continue to delight their fans. They are both very well known, and their roles in the movies and on television have increased their star power and popularity in this country. Both actors will continue to entertain for many years to come, and hopefully we will see many more specials and one-time appearances by both stars of the Late Night Show.
