Hilariously deadpan spoof with some sexual and racial humor.

Community Reviews

age 12+
The topics of the show here range from silly to more mature, but the more mature segments are done tastefully and appropriately. I think it is a great introduction to more “taboo” issues because Nathan is straightforward yet sensitive, while still maintaining great humor. I think Nathan’s demeanor is also great for kids and adults to see because his persona has been influenced by the autistic community, and I think it is important for people to see people on the spectrum as normal and successful.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models

Some Episodes Fine some not

Okay, this is probably one of my favorite shows I have seen in a while. He created something called dumb Starbucks. He copied everything from Star bucks but put “Dumb” in front of it so it’s a Parody. There is a invention for a hotel called a “Sex box”. It’s for if you want to have sex but you have a kid with you. So he made a box that’s sound proof. He put toys and themed it like a rocket ship. So he hired porn stars to have sex next to it as hard as they could. The kid couldn’t hear anything. So he hired 7 porn stars to test it. They sensor everything. Don’t listen to that 18 plus garbage. It’s the character of Nathan that makes it funny.
