KeyBank Center Press Release

Comedian Nate Bargatze has announced even more shows to extend “The Be Funny Tour” into the summer of 2024. Bargatze will perform at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center on Sunday, June 16.

Hailed as “The Nicest Man in Stand-Up,” by The Atlantic Magazine and a “Rising Star,” by “CBS Mornings,” 2021 Grammy-nominated comedian, podcaster, director and producer Bargatze is selling out shows around the world.

An Old Hickory, Tennessee, native, Bargatze followed in the showbiz footsteps of his father, a former clown turned world-class magician, who’s influence is seen on his 2015 debut Comedy Central special, “Full Time Magic,” and his debut album, “Yelled at By a Clown,” which reached No. 1 on the iTunes comedy charts and remained on Billboard’s top 10 comedy charts for weeks.

Bargatze’s half-hour Netflix special, “The Standups,” premiered in 2017, while his first solo one-hour Netflix special, “The Tennessee Kid,” premiered globally with rave reviews in 2019. In 2021, he released his critically acclaimed second Netflix special, “The Greatest Average American,” which received a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album. Bargatze then released his third one-hour special, “Nate Bargatze: Hello World,” on Amazon Prime. The show holds the record as Amazon’s most-streamed original comedy special in its first 28 days of viewership.

On April 15, 2023, Bargatze broke the attendance record at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with 19,365 tickets sold. He also broke the record for tickets sold at The Delta Center in Salt Lake City, with 32,638 fans attending – the highest amount ever sold by a comedian at the venue.

He was recently signed to Universal Music Group Nashville as a flagship comedian under the new Capitol Comedy label.

Bargatze was featured as one of Esquire's “Best New Comedians” 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. He also appeared on the cover of Variety’s annual comedy issue in 2022. 

Artist presale begins at 10 a.m. Wednesday (code FUNNY). A KeyBank Center presale will be held from 10 a.m. Thursday local through 9:30 a.m. Friday. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday via natebargatze.com.
