Nate Bargatze to Host Saturday Night Live: A Dream Come True
Comedian Nate Bargatze will host "Saturday Night Live" on Oct. 28, with the Foo Fighters as the musical guest.
In an exciting turn of events, comedian Nate Bargatze has been chosen to host "Saturday Night Live" on October 28, just weeks after his successful shows in Salt Lake City at the Delta Center. The announcement was made on Tuesday, and it was also revealed that the Foo Fighters will be the musical guest for the evening.
The 49th season of "Saturday Night Live" kicked off last week with former cast member Pete Davidson as the host. Now, Bargatze, a 44-year-old comic from Old Hickory, Tennessee, is set to take the stage and entertain the audience with his unique brand of humor. Known for his "clean" comedy style, Bargatze has gained popularity with two Netflix specials, namely "The Tennessee Kid" and "The Greatest Average American." In addition, he has an Amazon Prime special called "Hello, World!" that premiered earlier this year in January.
Currently, Bargatze is in the midst of his nationwide "The Be Funny Tour," which showcases his comedic talent to audiences across the country. He also hosts a weekly podcast called "Nateland" and has produced several comedy specials for his YouTube channel Nateland Entertainment. His aim is to create an entertainment brand that is accessible to a wider range of viewers, allowing them to have more options when it comes to comedy.
The Foo Fighters, led by frontman Dave Grohl, were recently in Utah as well, performing at the USANA Amphitheater in early August. Unfortunately, their previous Utah show was canceled due to the tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. However, the band is now set to make their ninth appearance on "SNL," according to Deadline. Fans can look forward to their musical performance during Bargatze's episode.
The Foo Fighters' latest album, titled "But Here We Are," was released in June, showcasing their continued musical prowess and ability to captivate audiences with their rock sound. With Bargatze's comedic talent and the Foo Fighters' musical prowess, the upcoming episode of "Saturday Night Live" promises to be a memorable one.
Overall, this exciting announcement of Nate Bargatze hosting "Saturday Night Live" and the Foo Fighters performing as the musical guest has generated a buzz among fans. With Bargatze's clean comedy style and the Foo Fighters' rock music, the episode is sure to provide a night of entertainment that will leave audiences laughing and rocking out.
