Nathan for You on Comedy Central

Postby Tyler » Thu Sep 04, 2014 12:56 pm

Never even heard of this, but sounds funny.

Nathan For You is an American docu-reality comedy television series starring Canadian comedian Nathan Fielder. The series was co-created by Fielder and premiered on February 28, 2013 on the American cable television network Comedy Central.[1] In the series, Fielder plays an off-kilter version of himself, who tries to use his business background and life experiences to help struggling companies and people, such as Enron and Lee Iacocca, offering them strategies that no traditional business consultant would dare to attempt

I think it's in its second season. I've only seen a couple episodes but it's pretty funny. I like how serious he is about his ridiculous business propositions.

I've seen the best reality TV bit I've ever seen. They offered $1.75 gas (after rebate). The rebate had to be dropped off at the top of a mountain 1.5 hours away. When the few people got there they had to answer a series of riddles and camp over night. In the end he convinced them the friendships they made were more important than a $10 rebate and they gave up looking for the rebate box just as they were feet away from it.

Finished season 1. One idea that wasn't actually horrible was a screen system for taxis to indicate if you want to converse with the driver or not.

Corey, wasn't Lyft all about fist bumping and talking whereas Uber is more chauffeur leave me alone?

s03e01 delivered. This show is so funny. I am sure it's as "real" as most reality tv, but it still makes me laugh throughout the episode.

Having the therapist call the guy insane while he described what he has been doing with Nathan was hilarious.

s03e03 trolled Des Moines and a hand full of other local tv stations. Des Moines believe a 100% made up story and aired it as fact.

Correct. And it goes much deeper than that, Nathan has this guy acting for reasons he doesn't even fully understand. This guy is just a pawn in the whole scheme.

Smokers Allowed was possibly the most awkward one yet.
"I love you"
"...again..." x20 times

I can't decide if I like episodes where he focuses on 1 plot and it gets completely off the tracks or if he helps 2 businesses.

I'm okay with the variety, but this episode had me losing it. Just so uncomfortable
