"Parks and Recreation" VIP Nick Offerman is coming to the Tower Theater September 3, presented by WMMR's Preston and Steve. Tickets are $34.50 and go onsale May 17.
In previous live outtings, Offerman has riffed on his character, Ron Swanson, a meat-loving libertarian who hates Big Government, yet chooses to work in it (if only to take it down from the inside). He also love breakfast, brunettes and wood-working of any kind. Unlike "Parks and Rec's" Aziz Ansari, who recently filmed a comedy special at the Merriam last month, Offerman doesn't have roots as a stand-up. Pre-"Parks," he stuck to the theater, including working with Chicago's respected Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
Megan Mullally (that would "Will & Grace's" Karen), will serve as Offerman's supporting act, with her band Nancy & Beth, with Stephanie Hunt.
Just in case you were worried, NBC renewed "Parks and Recreation" for a sixth season a couple days ago. Next fall, it will move to 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
