Programming Alert: The Dumb Starbucks Episode of ‘Nathan for You’ Airs Tonight
Nathan Fielder jumped onto a lot of radars when he founded Dumb Starbucks. Tess Lynch visited the scene, and it was madness with a side of possible poignancy. Comedy Central quickly started streaming the eight-episode first season of Nathan for You on its website, and there was suddenly no excuse not to become a Fielderologist. Everything comes full circle tonight, when Dumb Starbucks gets it own episode. If it’s anything like Fielder’s previous extended concepts — “The Hunk,” “The Claw of Shame,” “Petting Zoo,” — we’re in for a paralyzingly funny treat.
