You probably know Nick Offerman from his breakout role as the thickly mustached, whiskey drinking, red meat devouring Ron Swanson on NBC’s sitcom Parks and Recreation. In real life, Offerman is also an accomplished stage actor, husband to fellow actress Megan Mullally (Karen on Will and Grace), and author of the book Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living. He even owns a woodshop (of course he does!) in East Los Angeles called Offerman Woodshop. Between hand-making canoes and making us laugh on screen, somehow Offerman also finds the time to do stand-up gigs here and there and we’re lucky enough to have one in our very own region on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, when he will perform at UC Davis’ Mondavi Center at 8:30 p.m. “From lessons in manliness, to high-spirited sing alongs, to the occasional bout with nudity, his stage performances are inspirational experiences for those lucky enough to attend,” says, which is exactly where you should point your browser to snag tickets to this not-to-be-missed comedy show. Prior to the show, starting at 7 p.m., there will be a free Comedy Take Over hosted by John Ross in the Corin Courtyard.
