Nat's What I Reckon

Book for an event

Nat is a comedian, cook, professional potty-mouth, musician, mental health advocate and award-winning, bestselling author who happens to hate writing his own bio so has to get his partner Jules to help. (Thanks, Jules.)

Nat’s platform has enabled him to hold up a tongue-in-cheek mirror to antiquated cultural norms, to promote a little kindness and to have a chat about his own battle with mental health. His comedy and cut-the-shit tutorials have collected a dedicated audience of over 4.5 million, thanks to his sweary delivery and underlying message of inclusivity and looking after ourselves.

When he’s not filming, cooking or purloining rosemary from a local traffic island, Nat can often be found indulging his love of rock’n’roll and comedy, playing in bands and stand-up rooms around Australia and abroad. He is the author of three bestselling books: Un-cook Yourself, Death to Jar Sauce and Life: What Nat to Do.
Un-cook Yourself and Death to Jar Sauce won the Booktopia Favourite Australian Book Award in 2020 and 2021 respectively, with Nat donating the winning proceeds each time to Beyond Blue. All three books have been shortlisted at the Australian Book Industry Awards. Isn’t that nice.
