Saturday Night Live
Nate Bargatze & Foo Fighters
October 29, 2023
Look. If you didn’t know who Nate Bargatze was before last Saturday night (and still might have some questions even after having seen the episode) don’t worry — he’s not exactly a household name. What you need to know: Bargatze is a stand-up comedian who has been around for a minute, well-regarded amongst fellow comedians and comedy nerds for a decade or so. He’s known as a “nice guy” in the comedy world because his material is pretty PG and also, he’s just a nice guy. He has some stand-up specials on Netflix. And he is just as confused as anyone as to what he’s doing hosting SNL.
And now you know as much as there is to know about Nate Bargatze.
Well, that, and that he hosted easily the best SNL of the season so far, and should absolutely be invited back.
