Some Super-Funny Stuff

Nathan For You is a stunt/prank show which disguises itself as a business rescue show. Nathan finds a business each week to "help." The advice he gives usually involves dubious interpretations of the law, unethical manipulation, and tricking the stupid, stupid media into giving his absurd business ventures free press. He cons the stupid, stupid media a lot.

They're not making any more episodes but here are some good ones.

Definitely watch one or two of these to see if you like his style of humor. Just a head's up: He already seems to be a socially-awkward, sneaky conniver, and on top of that, he plays those aspects of his personality up for the camera.

So your first impression is probably going to be: When did Ben Shapiro get a Comedy Central show?

But try to get past his very off-putting demeanor. He's doing it for the lulz. (Mostly.)

The first one is a pretty good entry. The set-up is dead-simple and the jokes are funny.

Definitely also check out the toy-maker one and "The Claw of Shame" stunt at the end.

The Problem: A caricature artist needs publicity and increased sales.

The Plan:Re-brand the caricature artist as an edgy insult comedy caricature artist who will deploy inappropriate sexual and racial slurs in his caricatures.

The Problem: A guy starting a new dating website needs more women to sign up.

The Plan: Because women are afraid they might be murdered or raped on dates, Nathan proposes a plan to make women feel safe on dates called "Daddy's Watching."

The Problem: A toy that a toy maker invented is very unpopular and doesn't sell.

The Plan: Use little kids' desire to not be seen as A Baby against them. Bully/manipulate little children into believing that if they don't have this toy, they are legally A Baby.

The last one isn't a business rescue prank, but a publicity stunt for himself.

Deciding that many magicians risk their lives doing escapes, he wants to up the ante and risk something worse than death-- being a registered sex offender if he doesn't escape a pair of handcuffs.

While he's escaping, a robotic claw will begin unzipping and taking down his pants and underwear. If he doesn't escape within 90 seconds, he'll expose himself to children in attendance, and a cop standing by will arrest him.

This is funny stuff, yo.
