Comedian Nate Bargatze delivered the laughs at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls on Thursday night. Although I haven't seen an official ticket count the venue looked extremely full.

On stage, Bargatze proved why he is one of America's best-loved comedians. He's humble and can weave a story like few can and can relate to everyone. He shared hilarious stories about his family and his early years before stand-up. Born in Tennessee, Bargatze shared a story about defending his small town's water tower after America was attacked on September 11, 2001.

Topics such as his pets, high-tech appliances, his pronunciation of certain southern words, and being on the road, were all crafted beautifully with brilliant timing.

One of the best features about Nate Bargatze, and his opening acts, is that is all clean humor and family-friendly. Vulgar language or offensive humor simply did not exist proving that true comedy does not require it to be successful.

The night was hosted by Julian McCullough and featured awesome openers such as Nick Thune, Aaron Weber, and others that set the tone of the evening perfectly.

The night ended with an uproarious standing ovation as Bargatze welcomed his opening acts back to the stage in the round.

Overall, we laughed from start to finish and my wife and I both had side-splitting aches, headaches, and hoarse vocals after the show from laughing so hard. This comedy tour is one of the best ones out there and would highly recommend this brand of medicine for the soul.
