NATE: A ONE MAN SHOW (2020)

(Netflix) Natalie Palamides’ comedy special is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Plenty will compare it to Hannah Gadsby’s NANETTE or the original theatrical production of FLEABAG, but it’s completely different; it’s extraordinarily audacious, often puerile, but always surprising and challenging. I’ll mention that it’s EXTREMELY NSFW, both aurally and visually, but if you’re okay with that, do yourself a favor and go in cold and watch to the end.

If you’ve watched it, she was recently interviewed by uber-comedy nerd Jesse David Fox on his exceptional weekly deep dive into a comedian’s joke, GOOD ONES: https://www.vulture.com/2020/12/good-one-podcast-natalie-palamides-talks-nate.html

Helen Shaw also has an insightful interview with her in Vulture, which digs deeper into clown comedy than FX’s BASKETS: https://www.vulture.com/2020/09/natalie-palamides-nate-netflix-comedy-special.html
