Ron Swanson is coming to Philly

Nick Offerman will play the Tower in September.

Ron Swanson is coming to Philly


"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.

Since Preston and Steve and bringing Offerman to town, I'm sure he'll make an appearance on their show, which you'll not only be able to listen to, but watch as well with their new Daily Rush video segments.
