Jimmy Fallon announces Nate Bargatze’s NBC development deal in his “Late Night” intro

Nate Bargatze already performed once this year on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and back in June, Fallon couldn’t have enough nice things to say about the young stand-up comedian. Holding up his stand-up album and whatnot.

Well, Fallon one-upped all of that on Friday night’s show. Two-upped it, really. He not only plugged the album again by holding up the cover (and helping propel Bargatze’s record to #1 on iTunes to boot), but also plugged their Jimmy Fallon’s Clean Cut Comedy Tour┬átogether and announced that NBC had given Bargatze a development deal. How about that!

You’ve seen Bargatze’s father on his album cover as a clown (and a magician). In this stand-up set, you’ll learn how Bargatze’s mother also played a large influence, and why Nate isn’t so keen on science any longer.

Roll the clip!
