Tv Season Info
[Exposes] the genre's inherent insincerity. With the first season of his titular show... Nathan Fielder has redefined the prank show.
The result is viewers not laughing at innocent strangers but at Fielder and at ourselves, the audience who actually watches this kind of crap. Fielder's deadpan delivery is unbreakable and hilarious.
It's all uncomfortable laughter, of course, as we're essentially watching people who aren't in on the joke. But some of the gags are so silly that it's impossible not to find them childishly amusing.
It's a show that's brilliant in its stupidity, but also one that is reassuring.
Fielder isn't just a uniquely warped comic mind: He's also a student of human psychology... In the brilliant first season of Nathan For You the insane risks he takes pay huge comic dividends that will hopefully result in a second season.
