Nat’s What I Reckon
May 15, 2021
Not unlike we have alluded to in the review of Nat’s What I Reckon’s recently released book, the man’s talents are manifold and his antics are best to be experienced via his immensely popular YouTube channel or in the flesh as it allows not only for finer nuances but also his personality to shine through, which is an integral part of his appeal.
With his star on the rise and resonance having intensified throughout 2020, it was nice to see him take on bigger stages in 2021 like the Enmore Theatre as part of his “On Purpose” tour.
The evening was a melange of storytelling with Nat giving insights into the wild ride that saw him become an internet phenomenon and the creative process and inspirations that fuelled it all. With his idiosyncratic piss-taking demeanour he manages to incorporate multimedia components into his stage show, which punctuate and substantiate his accessible and wry anecdotes, backed by audience participation, interactive dialogues, his appreciation of music.
What makes the show is both Nat’s unique energy as well as the fact that while his brand of comedy is silly and unapologetic yet never lacks an inherent humanist edge and an outlook at what is perceived to be normal that is informed by his brushes with mental health issues.
Given Nat’s What I Reckon’s traction and quantum leap his career and his stage craft has taken over the last twelve months, it should only be a matter of time until he will channel his alchemy in ways that will take him to the next level both in terms of comedic performances as well as success in other English speaking parts of this earthround.
