Learn how to be a better d*ckhead with Nat’s deep and meaningful guide to life.
Comedian, content creator, metalhead and isolation YouTube sensation Nat’s What I Reckon has become Australia’s isolation saving grace.
Making videos as Nat’s What I Reckon for almost a decade, Nat’s hilarious social commentary has amassed a quickly growing, dedicated audience of over 1.6 million along the way, and videos clocking up views close to 100 million across all platforms. While taking the playful and thorough piss out of everything from trade shows and tattoo events to burnout festivals and exploring Area 51, it’s his no-nonsense cooking segments that have been bringing comfort to the masses during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Waging war against processed food after observing that pasta jar-sauce shelves had been picked clean by hoarders but fresh produce sections were full and untouched, Nat launched a no-nonsense instructional video on one of his tried and true pasta sauce recipes. With his classic, sweary style and signature cheery spin and whistle the clip immediately went to a new level of viral for Nat – and for good reason, they are absolutely hilarious. Highlights include the End Of Days Bolognese, Carbo-Rona Sauce, and Wham Bam Thank You Lamb and have even managed to get the tick of approval from A-List fans including Dave Grohl and Yael Stone.
Honestly if you haven’t seen them, treat yourself. They are absolute gold.
Now that we’ve all cooked our way out of lockdown and are wondering what the hell to do next, our favourite ratbag has teamed up with Penguin Books Australia, in the aim of teaching us more about life in this thoroughly unhelpful (but maybe actually kinda helpful?) self-help guide.
Slated for release in December, ‘Un-cook Yourself – A Ratbag’s Rules for Life’ will feature a tonne of recipes, comics, nine no-nonsense rules, and a whole lot of eye-watering stories from his early years before a sweary video about pasta sauce shot him to global fame.
Good onya, champ!
Ahead of the release, the comedian is slated to head around the country on the ‘On Purpose’ tour later this year… and Geelong just so happens to be on the itinerary for an especially entertaining evening of piss-taking and previously unreleased videos. The November show is sold out, but keep your eye out. You never know what might pop up.
Until then, you can pre-order your copy of ‘Un-cook Yourself – A Ratbag’s Rules for Life’ now.
