You love him as the baritoned, mustachioned, meat-loving Ron Swanson of Parks & Recreation. Now you can get to know Nick Offerman on a deeper level at Nick Offerman's American Ham. The show promises “anecdotes, songs and woodworking tips with minor nudity.” “Sordid details of my sexual awakening as a born-again Christian will be unveiled; there will be singing songs of my own devising, and the nudity will be all mine, and it will be either an 'airing of grievances” or a 'bridge of sighs,'” Offerman emailed us from his parents' home in a small Illinois town. An accomplished woodworker, Offerman can't help but shove his passion down our throats. What is a woodworker's dream vacation? “A woodworker's dream vacation would be to the village of Sheffield, England, where the finest tool steel is created for the forging of chisels and tool blades. Paradise.” Largo at the Coronet, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd.; Fri., Jan. 13, 8:30 p.m.; $25. (310) 855-0350.
