Why See Natalie Palamides: NATE?
Natalie Palamides Returns With A New Subversive Alter Ego
Winner of the 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer in 2017 thanks to her groundbreaking debut in fertility-based comedy Laid, LA-based performer Natalie Palamides brings her latest hilarious and thought-provoking comedy to London for a strictly limited run this winter. Tackling the issue of consent in the era of the Me Too Movement, 'Natalie Palamides: Nate' sees the comedienne cross dress as a bumbling yet somehow charming male alter ego, simultaneously workshopping and interacting with the audience, satirising casual sexism and exploring love, relationships and masculinity from a skewered male perspective.
Donning a fake moustache, sharpie chest hair and trousers that don't quite conceal disproportionate rubber male genitalia, Natalie parades as Nate, a real man's man who at first comes off to the audience as a real jerk, before they warm up to his politically incorrect take on sensitivity and warped sense of machismo. Palamides manages to face an uncomfortable and controversial topic head on, mixing bad taste comedy with thoughtful wit with uncontrollably funny results.
Opening night: 13 November 2018

Everything is well judged. Everything works. From the direction and choreography to the set, the lights, the score, the band. From the top of Olympus to the depths of Hades. It's heavenly.
