Nick Offerman has some words of advice for fans coming to see his show with wife Megan Mullally (together, inset) at the Beacon Theater on Tuesday night — bring a change of clothes.
“A lot of people end up with wet suits due to one physical reaction or another,” he deadpanned. “There’s urine, and people have also been known to cream their jeans, as they say, when they hear my wife sing a melody. We don’t say that lightly because we’re the ones who end up paying for theater seats to be reupholstered.”
The 46-year-old comedian describes “Summer of 69: No Apostrophe” as a “really fun show. I play guitar and Megan plays ukulele. We sing songs about our marriage and our genitalia and some current events.”
While his “Parks and Recreation” character Ron Swanson is a fervid libertarian, Offerman isn’t quite so keen.
“I’m a fan of a lot of the tenets of libertarism but I don’t think that it’s a valid system overall,” he said. “I think if we actually tried to engage in libertarism, I feel like we’d end up in anarchy. I would prefer not to defend our house and our poodles with firearms if I can help it. I prefer hand shakes and square dancing.”
Offerman met Mullally, now 57, in 2000 when the two co-starred in a play together. The two wed three years later, and the “Will & Grace” star credits their longevity to a very simple reason.
“We like each other,” Mullally said. “We also have a two-week rule, where we don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other. We’ve only broken it by a couple of days twice in 16 years.”
Offerman also notes that the pair are “boring.”
“We stay at home and read books and do puzzles. It’s our favorite downtime activity, put on an audio book and do a 2,000-piece puzzle,” he said.
The duo told [email protected] thye’re currently working on a puzzle of a virile Burt Reynolds with no pants on.
“He’s got his back to the camera but his little buns are peeping out and he’s doing a little sheepish grin over his shoulder. It’s heaven,” Mullally crowed.
