Satire Meets Crowdwork to Mixed Results

Natalie plays a macho man on stage in a post-"Me Too" world. The character is ludicrous, disgusting, naive, sad and (at points) trying to do the right thing. Gutsy in look, the protagonist is topless throughout the whole show, sporting a wig, hair everywhere and a handle bar mustache. The large physical performance involves purposely awkward crowdwork that is fun at first, shocking in the middle (as the performance gets pretty raunchy) and pretty middling at the end. And that's how you might describe 'Nate' as a whole. A good concept designed to shock that just ultimately fizzles out as the viewer's asking themselves, 'Why?' Is it a meta-commentary on the ultra-serious one man show? Was that the point? Or was it really just about how men just don't get it? The message is intentionally vague but at least it was entertaining.

Compulsory sit down tragedy

I know many who would not manage this. It is literally in-your-face. It is raw, mad, provocative, ugly and very, hideously familiar. The audience is not let off. The few audience members who end up on stage are put through the ringer and it is bad. Very bad. Inappropriately bad. Unforgivably bad. And yet, the whole issue of consent is dealt with right at the beginning. Nobody knows what they have signed up for, Nate is a loose canon and anything that can happen does.

Funny thing is, at the end I cried. I cried properly. I cried for men and women and myself. I cried for Natalie Palmides and for Nate and for the whole audience. Because even when this stuff is laugh-out-loud funny, it tears you to pieces, and reminds you how deep the mess we are in really is.

Don't say I didn't warn you, but Nate is compulsory viewing.

Enjoyable And Funny

I can see why some people don't like this special. Those people probably expected a standard stand-up special but this is so much more. If your a fan of improve and don't mind being uncomfortable at times(that's the point people) then you will most likely enjoy this. I personally found it to be hilarious.
