Nate Bargatze is a southern born comedian from Old Hickory, Tennessee. He came from a wonderful home where everyone had a great sense of humor. One of Nate's earliest memories is watching his father who is a world class comedic magician. Stephen Bargatze is in the top 150 greatest sleight of hand magicians in the world. Although Nate admired what his father did, he was lazy about learning the tricks so he decided to go into stand up comedy. In 2002, he moved to Chicago and started taking improv classes and doing stand up. He was in Chicago for two years and then moved to New York City. New York is where he started to get real serious about comedy and performing every night. Although he has been in New York for only two years, he has taken it by storm. He has performed at Caroline's on Broadway, New York Improv, Comedy Village, Stand-Up New York, Rascals, and Zanies to name a few. On February 16, 2007, he made his TV debut on CMT Comedy Stage. He has also been featured on MSG NY and has also been heard on XM radio and toured all over the country.
