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.
