"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 that range from travel to science. “I read where they said cockroaches are 350 million years old,” he says. “Are they? Or do you know I don’t know how to go figure that out?”
