When I realized Nick Offerman, Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation, had a comedy special, I just knew that I had to watch it and review it for all of you.Parks and Rec is probably one of my favorite shows ever. I’ve watched it about six times on Netflix and it always makes me laugh, without fail. And Ron Swanson is one of my favorite characters. I mean if we’re being completely honest Ben Wyatt is my favorite character, but that’s another story. This comedy show is called “American Ham” and its Nick Offerman’s 10 tips to living a prosperous life. Let’s dive into some of those tips, shall we?
His very first tip is to engage in romantic love. He goes into how much he loves his wife Megan Mullally, who played Karen Walker on Will and Grace, and how they’ve been able to stay together for so long in a world where celebrities get married and then get divorced at the drop of a hat. For a comedy show, he gets really freaking adorable when he talks about how much he loves his wife. So for those of you who only see Nick Offerman as tough as nails, bureaucrat hating, bacon loving, Ron Swanson, don’t worry guys, he’s actually a teddy bear.
Moving on. His last, and probably best tip was to paddle your own canoe. He sang a song for this tip, which I thought was very appropriate. He tells his audience that they should basically be doing their own thing. They shouldn’t follow the leaders but instead become their own leaders. I thought that this was a great way to end the show. This show was amazing, especially for someone who loves Parks and Rec and loves Ron Swanson.
This show was very different from others I’ve seen. It is funny without trying too hard, it gives good advice without sounding demanding, and it’s just a really interesting look into Nick Offerman’s life. This show was amazing, especially for someone who loves Parks and Rec and loves Ron Swanson.
