Nick Offerman: American Ham Tour
Saturday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m.
Royce Hall at UCLA
Set aside your grudges and head to UCLA for an evening of comedy.
Though thereâs no guarantee heâll appear mustachioed, Nick Offerman is still sure to bring the laughs Saturday night with his unique routine.
Part performer, part motivational speaker, the dry and impossibly macho actor-comedian will mix storytelling and stand-up during his set. And with the promise of minor nudity, fans of Offermanâs Parks and Recreation character Ron Swanson are surely already lining up outside of Royce Hall.

Before Tina Fey or Kristen Wiig dazzled viewers on Saturday Night Live, Lily Tomlin kept America laughing with her wacky humor and knack for delivering hilarious facial expressions.
On Saturday, one of comedyâs original funny girls takes the stage at Smothers Theater for a night of stand-up. Though the comedian is also known for her work in films like Nine to Five and her role as Ms. Frizzle on the animated television series The Magic School Bus, Tomlin plans to regale this weekendâs audience with snippets from the iconic Edith Ann and Ernestine sketches.
Tickets arenât the cheapest, ranging from $40 to $60,Â but Tomlinâs comedy- legend status guarantees a knockout performance.
Plus, with the 405 closed this weekend, a trip down the Pacific Coast Highway to Smothers Theater might not be such a bad idea.

If youâve been looking for an excuse to wear neon tights and form-fitting leotards, check out Totally 80s at the Hollywood Bowl.
On Saturday night, summer comes to its official end as four classic â80s bands â The Go-Goâs, The Psychedelic Furs, The Motels and Bow Wow Wow â take the stage to perform their greatest hits and guilty pleasures.
Throw on a scrunchie or some Ray-Bans and relive an era you probably werenât alive to experience. Or just show up as your perfect, modern-day self to rock out to some time-tested pop music.
Band of Horses
