Nathan Fielder has made his triumphant return to television. The deadpan comedian, originally from Canada, became hugely popular in the United States with his Comedy Central TV show “Nathan for You,” in which he helped struggling businesses with outlandish ideas. In Fielder’s latest outing, he chose to help individuals over businesses, and he strives to do just that.
The Rehearsal, now streaming on HBO Max, is an approximately 45-minute docu-comedy series. It explores the idea Fielder had while working on his previous show, “what if you could repeat your life,” and with only one episode airing, it’s frankly a television masterpiece.
