THIS SUMMER IT'S BACK 2 BUSINESS!

FROM THE GUY WHO BROUGHT YOU POO-FLAVORED YOGURT, PIG SAVES GOAT & DUMB STARBUCKS... SEASON TWO OF COMEDY CENTRAL’S® “NATHAN FOR YOU” PREMIERES TUESDAY, JULY 1 AT 10:30 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK, June 9, 2014 – Comedy Central’s “Nathan For You,” the series critics have called “ridiculously hilarious” and “insanely brilliant,” returns for its second season beginning Tuesday, July 1 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following the season two premiere of “Drunk History.” Nathan Fielder is back helping real small businesses turn a profit with marketing tactics that no ordinary consultant would dare to attempt. Before the premiere of season two, fans can look back on all of Nathan’s sincere efforts to inspire and help, often lost in hilarious translation, by watching the complete season one now available on the Comedy Central App and at cc.com/nathan.

This season, Nathan ups the ante with some of his most ambitious ideas to date. From driving foot traffic to an off-the-strip souvenir shop by using Hollywood flair and a Johnny Depp impersonator, to convincing a pet store to market at a pet cemetery by advertising on a gravestone, to finding a legal way to appropriate the trademark of one of the world’s biggest brands by opening a coffee shop called Dumb Starbucks, Nathan goes as far as it takes to make his ideas come to life. But with his unorthodox approach to problem solving, Nathan’s genuine efforts to do good often draw real people into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.

In the season two premiere, Nathan sets out to prove that honest auto mechanics do exist by having one submit himself to a lie detector test every time he provides an estimate, and helps a struggling realtor find a niche in a competitive market by taking her down an unexpected, and somewhat out of this world, path as the area’s first Ghost Realtor – providing guarantees that the homes she shows are free of any and all Supernatural entities.

In addition, fans of “Nathan For You” will be able to preview the following week’s episode of season two every week during its run one week prior to each episode’s on-air premiere via the Comedy Central App (available via authentication through their cable or satellite provider). The Comedy Central app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is available for free on the App Store or at AppStore.com/cc. Season two episodes of “Nathan For You” will also be available the day after air in SD and HD for iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Vudu and Verizon Flexview.

Fans can watch clips and previews on the show’s website atcc.com/nathan, follow Nathan on Twitter @nathanfielder as he live tweets premiere episodes and “like” the “Nathan For You”Facebook page for access to exclusive content.

“Nathan For You” is produced by Abso Lutely Productions. Fielder, Michael Koman and Dave Kneebone are Executive Producers. Jim Sharp and Rachel Olson are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
