Natalie Palamides: Nate

icon-calendar

Technically a comedy show, this piece from rising-star performer Natalie Palamides is a hilarious and eventually troubling look at consent. In it, the American comic’s douchebag male alter-ego Nate hugs, fights and drinks with his audience, before going on a date that sends us out feeling very uneasy.
