A live taping of Nick Offerman's one-man show at New York's historic Town Hall theater, featuring a collection of anecdotes, songs and woodworking/oral-sex techniques.



Nick Offerman: American Ham received mostly positive reviews from critics. Geoffrey Berkshire of Variety, said in his review that "Nick Offerman's affable stage presence carries this fairly routine standup concert film."[5] John DeFore in his review for The Hollywood Reporter said that "The stand-up film won't please all fans of Offerman's acting work."[6] Kyle Burton of Indiewire graded the film a B-, saying that ""American Ham" is a solid comedy special—with stylish prerecorded title sequences for each new Tip—but it lacks some of the inventiveness or surprise that might otherwise warrant a slot at a major film festival. But that doesn't negate the way Offerman’s honest Americanist attitude regularly leads to laughs and insight."[7]
