            “Bargatze’s comedy is both clean and relatable, evident in his six appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon following four appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He appeared on Conan four times, was a recurring guest on @midnight, and had his own Comedy Central Presents in 2011. Off-screen, Bargatze was part of Jimmy Fallon’s Clean Cut Comedy Tour, and has done live shows for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait five times. He regularly performs at Bonnaroo, SXSW, Oddball Comedy Festival, Sasquatch, Clusterfest, and the JFL Montreal Comedy Festival, where he’s received critical acclaim multiple years in a row. Bargatze is also in production on a pilot for ABC, which he created and stars in.”

Safest Cities in America


After poring over the FBI’s crime data for 2018, AdvisorSmith has concluded that Virginia Beach is the safest big city in the country.

The accolades just keep piling up for The Beach, and like many others, this one won’t be a surprise to residents or to local business owners. The commercial insurance advisors at AdvisorSmith called cities with 100k—300k residents midsize, and cities smaller and larger were called small and big cities, respectively. At nearly half a million, that puts Virginia Beach up against the likes of New York and Boston.

On methodology, AdvisorSmith says

Our study tabulated the violent and property crimes per 1,000 residents per year for publication. We also created a proprietary crime score that was based upon applying a multiplier to more serious forms of crime such as murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. These crimes were added to simple assault and property crimes to form a crime score for each city, with a lower score indicating that a city experiences less crime. We then ranked the cities based upon their crime scores to determine the safest cities in the United States.

In the neighboring Research Triangle, Cary, North Carolina ranks as the safest of the country’s midsize cities.
