Nathan For You – Caricature Artist – Uncensored



IF YOU ANSWERED YES, YOU'RE PROBABLY CARICATURE
ARTIST GREG DOHLEN. HE WAS THE ONE THAT DREW IT. AND AFTER TWO DECADES
OF DOING CARICATURES, HE HAS YET
TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF.
– IT'S ALWAYS A STRUGGLE.
AND I'VE KIND OF–
I'VE BEEN DOING THIS
SINCE '89. – BUT SOMETIMES
THE SOLUTION IS AS SIMPLE AS KEEPING UP
WITH THE TRENDS. – YOU DREW ME HERE.
– YEAH. – IT'S ENJOYABLE
TO SEE YOURSELF PORTRAYED AS A CARTOON.
– YEAH. – BUT I DON'T THINK
IT MAKES ME LAUGH. CARICATURES
ARE INSULT COMEDY. – WELL, YEAH. – IN THE CATEGORY
OF INSULT COMEDY, JUST TO SHOW YOU WHAT'S
CURRENTLY POPULAR RIGHT NOW, HERE, JUST WATCH. – I LIKE YOU, JASON ALEXANDER.
I FIND YOU SEXY. KISS ME, YOU FAT [bleep]. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE WHAT JERRY SEINFELD'S
[bleep] TASTES LIKE. – I SHOWED HIM A CLIP
OF THE WILDLY POPULAR COMEDY CENTRAL ROASTS, WHICH PROVED THAT TO BE
A HIT IN INSULT COMEDY, THE MEANER YOU ARE,
THE BETTER. THE PLAN: TO RE-BRAND GREG
AS "THE KING OF STING." – UM, I'VE GOT–I'VE GOTTEN
MORE NEGATIVE REACTIONS FROM GOING EXTREME
THAN POSITIVE REACTIONS. – NO ONE LIKED ELVIS
WHEN HE FIRST CAME OUT, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? PEOPLE WERE OFFENDED.
– RIGHT. – BUT YOU HAVE
TO POWER THROUGH THAT IF YOU WANNA BECOME BIG. AT FIRST, GREG SEEMED
RESISTANT TO THE CONCEPT. BUT AS WE STARTED
BRAINSTORMING IDEAS… – YEAH, IT MIGHT BE FUNNY
IF HE'S CHINESE, AND I MAKE HIM A PHOTOGRAPHER
WITH THE BIG BUCK TEETH. – OH, YEAH, YEAH. – LITTLE SQUINTY EYES
AND BIG BUCK TEETH. – YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. HE QUICKLY BEGAN
TO EMBRACE IT. I LEFT HIM WITH A FEW EDGY
CONCEPTS OF MY OWN TO WORK ON, AND HE STARTED
SKETCHING THEM OUT. THE NEXT DAY, I RETURNED
TO SEE THE RESULTS. ALL RIGHT, SO THIS IS
THE IDEA I HAD FOR A COUPLE, AND YOU HAVE TO DRAW A COUPLE. SO THAT'S YOU, THE ARTIST, UH, DOING THE WOMAN
OF THE COUPLE FROM BEHIND, DOGGY STYLE,
SHE'S SAYING, "I LIKE THIS." HER BOYFRIEND IS LOOKING
AT A HUMMINGBIRD'S PENIS AND THINKING, "THAT'S HUGE." YEAH, THIS IS GOOD. IT'S REALLY FUNNY. THIS IS, UM, YOUR VERSION
OF AN ASIAN BUSINESSMAN. UM, DO YOU THINK
THIS ONE, UH…HMM… – SEE, I'M NOT–
I'M NOT SURE, UH, WHEN YOU PRESENTED
AN ASIAN PICTURE WHICH DIRECTION
I SHOULD GO WITH IT. I WENT ALL DIRECTIONS REALLY. WE COULD TRY IT OUT,
SEE HOW IT GOES. – SURE, YEAH.
I MEAN, I'M NOT GONNA GET– YOU KNOW, IN ART, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T WANT TO GET
IN PEOPLE'S WAY OR ANYTHING, SO I'M NOT GONNA–
BUT, YEAH. I MEAN,
THIS IS DEFINITELY– I MEAN, THE PEARL HARBOR THING
IS ALMOST NOT EVEN A JOKE. THE REST OF GREG'S NEW EDGY
CARICATURES LOOKED GREAT, AND I COULD TELL THAT
HE WAS READY TO TRY THEM OUT IN THE REAL WORLD. – DO YOU HAVE ANY HOBBIES? – I LIKE TO BIKE
AND SURF A LOT. I LIKE SWIMMING, DEEJAYING,
PLAYING THE TROMBONE. – THINGS WERE OFF
TO AN OKAY START, BUT I GOT KIND OF WORRIED
WHEN AN ASIAN MAN SAT DOWN. – I DRAW CARICATURES THAT ARE
A LITTLE MEAN AND EDGY. ARE YOU OKAY WITH THAT? – DEFINITELY.
– YEAH, OKAY, GOOD. HOW'S THAT?
YOU LIKE IT? – YEAH.
– OH, GOOD. – BUT I WAS WRONG.
THE GUY LOVED IT. YOU LIKE IT?
– YEAH, YEAH, I LIKE IT. – AND FROM THEN ON,
IT WAS SMOOTH SAILING. – OH, NICE, MAN. – WILL THAT WORK?
– THAT'LL WORK, DUDE. [both laugh] – GREG WAS HITTING
NOTHING BUT HOME RUNS, AND IT WAS AMAZING
TO WATCH HIM WORK. – OH, NICE. [laughter] – SO HOW DO YOU FEEL
IT ALL WENT TODAY? PEOPLE LAUGHED.
I SAW PEOPLE LAUGHING. – PEOPLE LAUGHED. LIKE, THE DEEP SIDE
OF PEOPLE'S HUMOR COMES OUT WHEN YOU SHOW THEM SHOCK. – YOU KNOW, AT THE BEGINNING
OF ALL THIS, I HAD YOU DRAW ME,
IT WASN'T FUNNY. SO NOW WITH EVERYTHING
THAT I'VE TAUGHT YOU, I'M SAYING GO AS HARD
AS YOU WANT ON ME, AS MEAN AS YOU WANT. – YOU WANT THE KING OF STING? – I WANT THE KING OF STING.
– OKAY. – 'CAUSE I WANNA LAUGH.
– OKAY. – ALL RIGHT,
THIS IS FUNNY, BUT IT'S HARD FOR ME
TO SEE MY GRANDPA DEPICTED IN THAT WAY. HE'S A CANADIAN WAR HERO, AND HE'S, LIKE, A VERY– HE HAS, LIKE, A VERY IMPORTANT
ROLE IN OUR FAMILY, SO I DON'T LIKE SEEING HIM
DEPICTED LIKE THIS. IT JUST– IT WAS A REAL SHAME THAT
GREG CHOSE TO END THE DAY ON SUCH A TASTELESS NOTE. BUT REGARDLESS
OF MY FEELINGS, HE TRULY WAS
THE KING OF STING.

  1. People like shock, vulgarity, even racism. I think it would only not be funny if you started being a dick to people's physical characteristics, especially ones they were already self conscious about. I'm actually not surprised this worked.

  2. The Asian guy liked it because he was from Asia and did not understand the stereotypes. Had he been Asian American, he would not have found it funny.

  3. I feel so bad for the Asian people… like, they might’ve not been offended, but I feel like I wouldn’t have known what to say if someone did that kind of thing to me and I WAS offended

  4. I do like the Nathan for You concept, but I wish it was for real. After watching several episodes it's clearly scripted with actors.

  5. Nathan always gives them the same speech at the end of the episode "you know what? This was a bad idea. Never again" LMAO
