BY: CLARE SAUSEN On September 10th, Nathan Fielder of Comedy Central’s Nathan for You is offering a sneak peek of the show’s fourth season (set to premiere on September 28th, 2017 with a 1 hour special entitled “Nathan For You: A Celebration” airing the week before) with a Q&A session afterwards.
Falling somewhere on the comedic scale between truTV’s Impractical Jokers and Comedy Central’s The Eric Andre Show, Fielder visits struggling small businesses and attempts to give them “advice” to help gain more customers– usually resulting in hilarious discomfort.
Fielder himself has a business degree from the University of Victoria in 2005, giving his faux suggestions some ground to stand on. Nathan for You began in 2013, and has continued to increase in viewership and popularity since.
Fielder’s ability to perfectly spoof business improvement shows like Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares while remaining straight-faced regardless of the often insane circumstances is what gives this show its unique charm. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, no episode conveys this better than Season 2’s premiere episode “Mechanic; Realtor,” where Nathan recommends a failing realtor start selling ghost-free homes, leading to an intense exorcism guaranteed to make you cringe.
Funny, charming, and certainly one of a kind– Nathan for You’s fourth season is sure to continue to build upon the success offered by the first three. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to ask Fielder questions about the show and see it all before it premieres at the Lincoln Theater on September 10th!
