(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
