“Ham” isn’t the first word you’d use to describe the comedy of Nick Offerman. He’s more about folksy, faux-masculine deadpan—like when he reads the tweets of Hollywood starlets while working in his woodshop on Conan. But Offerman’s newest touring comedy show, “American Ham,” is at least partially a tribute to Ron Swanson, the bacon-devouring character he plays on Parks and Recreation. When he brings the show to the Warner Theatre, he’ll deliver observations from his years in show business, plus at least a few references to the Parks and Rec gags that have dominated certain segments of Hulu’s viewership for the past several years. Then throw in a guitar, banter with his wife Megan Mullally, and some brief male toplessness. Offerman may not be a ham, but he does go H.A.M.
Nick Offerman performs at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. at the Warner Theatre, 513 13th St. NW. $29.50. (202)783.4000. warnertheatredc.com.
