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 on Embracing His Own Awkwardness for 'Nathan for You'

"Usually if someone gives you a social cue that he feels uncomfortable with something you've said, you'll jump in with a caveat and move on. Everyone's default state is this pleasantry state. My goal in the show is to undercut that as quickly as possible. If you really do let it sit, it's sometimes amazing what comes out of people."

- Nathan Fielder explains why he's embraced his own awkwardness for Nathan for You in a new and lengthy New York Times profile called "Nathan Fielder's Ingenious Dumb Humor" that's well worth the read.

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 [...]
