Nathan Fielder announced today on Twitter that the second season of his critically-acclaimed Comedy Central show Nathan For You will debut on Tuesday, June 24th. Nathan For You was renewed by the network for a 10-episode season last year, two more episodes than it was given during its initial season. The show will air Tuesdays at 10:30, following Drunk History, which premieres on the same date.
While I'm sure there's a ton of amazing stuff in these 10 episodes of Nathan For You, the most eagerly-awaited one will document "Dumb Starbucks," the fully-functioning Starbucks knockoff Fielder opened in Los Angeles last month. Dumb Starbucks, a [...]
Over the weekend, the internet was abuzz with news of a new Los Angeles coffee shop called "Dumb Starbucks," a near-fully functioning Starbucks that 1) was blatantly not affiliated with the company and 2) used the company's name and logo "for marketing purposes" but adds the word "dumb" in front of everything to protect the business under parody laws. Dumb Starbucks, which had its windows tinted to prevent passersby from looking inside, didn't charge money for coffee and pastries, instead giving away free cups of coffee featuring the Dumb Starbucks logo.

For fans of Nathan Fielder's new Comedy Central show, Nathan For You, or his hilarious Twitter experiments, it may seem like the comedian came out of nowhere this past year, but Fielder's recent success is a result of cultivating his comedic voice via YouTube videos, which led him to TV work on Canada's This Hour Has 22 Minutes and previous Comedy Central shows Important Things with Demetri Martin and Jon Benjamin Has a Van. Nathan Fielder began making his own short films as a 23-year-old living in Toronto in 2006, and his YouTube channel, which features over 30 original videos (short films, web series, and [...]
Comedy Central did the right thing today and picked up its critically-acclaimed series Nathan for You for a second season. Billed as a "docu-reality" series that follows comedian Nathan Fielder as he uses his business degree to advise struggling companies, Nathan for You is easily TV's best new comedy, and it should get even better in its second season. Created by Fielder and Michael Koman (Eagleheart, Conan), Nathan For You wrapped its eight-episode first season last week. The network says Season 2 will debut in 2014 and consist of 10 episodes this time around. Hopefully, Comedy Central will allow Fielder to strap himself to the front of a plane to [...]
Comedy Central's Nathan for You has been one of the funniest and most inventive new series of the year, thanks largely to the clever stunts star Nathan Fielder attempts each episode. THR has a profile with Fielder out this week in which he discusses a big crazy stunt Comedy Central wouldn't let him do. He wanted to strap himself to a plane to promote the show, Fielder explains:
I wanted to do a stunt to market my own show, where I strap myself to the outside front of a 737 for a flight from LAX to Burbank, like a short haul thing, and get all the media there [...]
