The best business proposals on Nathan For You

After years of keeping a low profile, Nathan Fielder is returning to the spotlight with The Rehearsalan HBO Max series in which Fielder is taking his cringeworthy comedy to the next level. Fielder made a name for himself primarily through Nathan For Youa series that lasted four seasons on Comedy Central and was based on the premise that Fielder was using his business degree to help failing businesses revitalize their operations.

The series occasionally deviated from that format, and often to great effect, but in general, Fielder would meet a business owner and offer a completely off-the-wall suggestion as to how they might increase their revenue. His ideas were almost always intentionally foolish, but they worked a surprising amount of the time, even if it wasn’t always the way Fielder had intended. Ultimately, though, this list is counting down not just Fielder’s most successful business plans, but also the ones that made us laugh the most.

The Help Maid service

With the goal of offering the speediest cleaning services imaginable, Fielder hires roughly 40 maids and advertises a service that can clean your entire home in just six minutes. As ludicrous as the idea sounds, it comes pretty close to working, even if Jim, the homeowner who hired the service, didn’t get a girlfriend out of the deal.
