One of the things we need most in the middle of a pandemic is a way to laugh about it.
That’s why Netflix’s Death to 2020 was such a hit. It released a little of that tactile tension we’ve all been shrouded in for the past year.
Nate Bargatze has been making people laugh for nearly two decades, but he really hit it out of the park with his new Netflix special.
He shot it in October last year, outside at Universal Studios in Hollywood, with a small and socially distanced crowd.
The Daily Beast is calling it the “the funniest stand-up special of the COVID era”, complete with “jokes about the perils of coughing in public and people who are convinced they had the virus long before it came to the US”.
“I was just like dying to get out,” he says.
“And I wanted to do it safely. You don’t want to get crushed by everybody being like, why are you going out? And then Netflix came back and said, ‘Look, we think we can tape this special now. We have a way to do it.’”
Yeah, he did it.
