Nick Offerman to perform at Chicago Theatre

Nick Offerman, the former off-Loop actor who went on to play Ron Swanson on the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation," now apparently is a big-enough name to headline the Chicago Theatre.

The former Defiant Theatre company member will play the downtown venue on Oct. 3, MSG Entertainment said Monday. The homecoming gig is part of Offerman's so-called "American Ham Tour." Tickets are on sale Friday.
