Nathan Fielder finds society fascinating—more than a comedian, he’s an observer of human behavior. In his shows like Nathan for You and The Rehearsal, he mines the absurdities of how people relate to one another and how he relates to them, and it all makes you think, laugh, then think some more. There’s no one like him, which is something people say about their friends, but it’s especially true of Nathan. His work stays with you.
On our new show The Curse, I watched him move fluidly between directing, writing, acting, and producing, all while editing The Rehearsal. It was a staggering feat. Working with him as a director is fantastic because he’s obsessively detail-oriented, but never loses sight of the big picture. And he’s a truly amazing actor. He could burst into tears or a fit of rage out of nowhere, and it was stunning because it all felt so honest.
But our relationship isn’t super gushy, so please don’t tell Nathan I said any of this.
