The life and comedy of Nate Bargatze seems to be one that might bridge a lot of divisions in the here and now. Just watch any of his stand-up and you’ll know that his carefully observed, homespun stories and observations delivered in the most down-to-earth way that we’ve ever seen and you’ll see what we mean.
So, a multi-cam sitcom centered on Bargatze is a smart move by ABC, though we’ll see if it makes out of the first season, which is becoming an increasing rarity for network comedies these days. Also, we’re curious with Jerrod Carmichael’s touch having The Carmichael Show under his belt and experiencing some EP success with the critically praised Ramy on Hulu.
Above all, we’ll be curious to see if America is game for another multi-cam sitcom based on the life of a comedian.
