Twenty One Questions With Nate Bargatze

Hailing from Old Hickory, Tennessee, Nate has an upcoming one hour stand up special called The Tennessee Kid, premiering 3/26 on Netflix. His 30 minute Netflix special from 2017 was so well received, it earned him this full upcoming hour. Most of our readers already know and love Nate, he won our highly coveted Comedian of the Year award in 2017. He’s a clean and relatable comic, but his appeal is so wide ranging that even fans of darker comedy love his stand up.

He has appeared on Fallon 6 times with a 7th upcoming. His last album, Full Time Magic, was number one on iTunes. Nate was featured as one of Esquire’s ‘Best New Comedians’, Rolling Stone’s ‘Comedians to Watch’ , one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” for 2015, and as #1 on Vulture’s ‘50 Comedians You Should Know’ in 2015.

And even though by our standards, Nate is already a comedy star, he’s on the verge of breaking to the next level. He’s currently developing his own show with ABC which he will star in and produce with Jerrod Carmichael and he is also about to embark on a national theater stand up tour.

Comedians love him, we love him, Jimmy Fallon loves him, and we know you love him. But do you know him? We asked Nate ten questions you can try to guess what he said.  The answers are hidden right below the pictures (click the arrow to see the answer).
