"I like to think of myself as a storyteller, but in joke form," says comedian Nate Bargatze. "I don't think I'm a storyteller like Ron White. My longest joke is like two minutes. But now I'm trying to look at a topic from every angle." The son of a successful magician, Bargatze’s first foray into comedy was via improv with a friend. The format wasn’t for him, but he soon discovered stand-up.

These days, he covers topics which range from travel to science. “I don’t believe in science,” he says. “I don’t understand it, so it’s easier to just not believe it.” He gives an example of why he feels this way. “I read where they said cockroaches are 350 million years old. Are they? Or do you know that I don’t know how to go figure that out?” Bargatze has logged numerous appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Conan, and his fanbase includes fellow comics Marc Maron and Jim Gaffigan.

7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday (Aug. 10); 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday. (Aug. 11) $20-$50. Funny Bone Liberty, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township,
