|Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation|
In 2009, the world was introduced to a man. Well, actually, that man had actually been in acting and comedy for some time. Scratch that. In 2009, the world was introduced to a mustache.
As Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman has brought his deadpan machismo to the masses for five years. With his American Ham tour he is breaking out of his TV role with an evening full of anecdotes, music, and intimate details concerning his wife, actress Megan Mullally.
Last night's two very sold-out sets at Mill City Nights weren't just standup performances, though. The show is a musical-comedy production with songs peppered throughout to emphasize the 10 key points in Offerman's routine. The musical numbers were performed solely by the man himself with an acoustic guitar, demonstrating that his range extends beyond comedy.
