Comedian Nate Bargatze is one of the strongest comedians out there today. So it should serve as no surprise that Bargatze has set a new record with a recent show.
Bargatze set a record at his hometown arena, Bridgestone Arena. He broke the attendance record for the venue, by having 19,365 attend his show on April 15th.
“It is incredible to have someone from middle Tennessee who grew up coming to Bridgestone Arena to watch events be able to come here and perform for the largest crowd we’ve ever hosted,” said EVP of Entertainment and Venues, David Kells.
Added Bargatze, “My first visit to Bridgestone Arena was to watch a Nashville Kats arena football game with my family and now wife and I have been going since they opened. When I started comedy, I would find myself daydreaming about coming home to play Bridgestone, but never really thinking it would happen. It will take me a while to wrap my head around it. All the people coming to the show, I can never repay you for allowing me to get to this point. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you.”
Bargatze’s most recent special, Hello World!, is streaming on Prime Video now.
