Inside 'Nathan For You' with Co-Creator Michael Koman

Michael Koman is the co-creator of two of the best comedies on TV — Nathan For You and Eagleheart – and he's about to add a third to his roster. Koman is gearing up for production on an yet-to-be-titled Adult Swim sitcom that pairs Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jack McBrayer, which Koman co-created with Robert Smigel and David Feldman. After spending seven years on the writing staff of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Koman left the late night world, and he's since become some sort of anti-Chuck Lorre, responsible for multiple TV shows that are some of the most original and funny things currently happening on TV. Nathan For [...]

Nathan Fielder Tells Scott Aukerman About His Nude Instagram Pictures

"It was just a silly thing at first. I thought it would be funny to have the reflection, but then as it went on it became this challenge. It's very hard to get the reflection perfect, so it was less about the dick and it was more just to see different ways to get a reflection, and everyone around the office started to participate and tried to figure out ideas … I see it as a definite comment, and I'm definitely commenting on a lot of nuances about our society as a whole, but also specific aspects of our society in general."

Nathan Fielder Describes a Cut 'Nathan for You' Bit Involving Reiki and Yogurt

"[Reiki]'s like a massage, but you don't touch the person … It's strange. My idea was after the person would remove the energy from people, she could charge people a fee to dispose of it. Maybe she could convince them it was bad for the environment. She did it. She was able to put the energy into a yogurt container. The thing did work, but it was just difficult to convey on tape."

- Nathan Fielder describes a very bizarre-sounding Reiki-themed Nathan for You bit that didn't make the final cut in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The Best of Nathan Fielder's Reddit AMA

Nathan for You star Nathan Fielder did a Reddit AMA with fans yesterday that's full of great responses on everything from how he keeps a straight face while filming the show to what it felt like to be called a "wizard of loneliness" by the private detective last season: "As mean as that was, I thought that was incredibly poetic for a guy like him. Very unexpected. But I guess there are many sides to all of us."

Nathan Fielder on Fascinating People, Social Awkwardness, and Taking 'Nathan for You' Abroad

Nathan Fielder might play a hopelessly awkward and highly unorthodox business consultant on his hit Comedy Central series Nathan for You, but it's a role he's mastered thanks to years of experience embracing and exaggerating what he once thought were the "terrible" parts to his personality — the compulsion to talk during awkward conversational pauses, a lack of finesse with girls, and the persistent insecurity that comes along with being a social outsider. Now that the second season of Nathan for You is in full swing, I recently talked with Fielder about what he's learned from last season, how he and Nathan for You co-creator Michael Koman make the [...]

Nathan Fielder Reveals a Rejected 'Nathan for You' Idea Involving Raisins

"Basically all raisins are the same, you know. I thought it could be a really interesting high-end grocery item if you could make a raisin that was perfectly smooth, rather than being wrinkly, and had more raisin inside. I thought it could be one of those products where you create a divide in the raisin market so that there's now a low-end raisin and a high-end raisin. If you want a raisin that's aesthetically pleasing, that's perfectly smooth but also tastes better because it has more raisin on the inside, now there would be one."

- Nathan Fielder reveals the Nathan for You idea that never made it to fruition [...]
