Entertaining The Masses: Nick Thune (And Beard)

Catch the Seattle-raised funnyman’s “Reunion Tour” stop at the Intiman Theatre.

There are two things that comedian Nick Thune does well: beards and comedy. And playing guitar. Three things.

We’ll start with beards. Nick Thune has the ability to grow a beard of Abrahamic proportions, then blink his eyes and make it disappear with not even a hint of razor burn. On command. Not really.

His signature dry wit and masterful wordplay make his comedy shows some of the funniest and most absurd you will ever see.

Oh, and he plays the guitar. Throughout his entire set.

Thune was born and raised in Seattle. He made his mark early and often, performing as often as he could. At the age of 24, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in stand-up comedy, and has since gained a significant amount of attention.

He has performed on several late night shows — including a regular bit on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Other appearances include feature films, such as “Knocked Up” and “Extract,” and a guest starring spot on the ABC sitcom, “Happy Endings.”

Thune will bring his “Reunion Tour” to the Intiman Theatre at the Seattle Center on Thursday, Dec. 1; the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets ($20) are available online.

Do not miss this.
