Nate was featured as one of Esquire’s ‘Best New Comedians’ by Jim Gaffigan, one of Marc Maron’s ‘Comedians to Watch’ in Rolling Stone, one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” for 2015, and as #1 on Vulture’s ‘50 Comedians You Should Know’ in 2015. His debut one hour special, Full Time Magic, premiered on Comedy Central that spring, followed by his debut album, “Yelled at by a Clown,” which reached #1 on the iTunes Comedy Charts and remained on Billboard’s Top Ten Comedy Charts for weeks.

I may need to take a break, is there intermission or opener?

Are tickets still available, I have a friend asking about them?
YES! You can buy tickets online here or during normal box office hours below.
So there could be a line, do you offer SKIP THE LINE PASSES?
YES! Why wait in the elements when you can skip the line?! This is a separate ticket from your event ticket that will grant you expedited entry into the venue.
