Some Nate’s are born lucky… Nate’s just lucky to be alive… Yeah, way too dark. Let’s try again.

Nate makes up the second, more decisive half of Nat1 Presents. While Nate Stalcup is capable of rolling out of bed and entertaining a crowd, Nate Casimiro prides himself in relentless hard work and peer pressure.

When he’s isn’t trying not to fall out of his chair laughing from Nate’s rant-like antics, you’ll find him behind the scenes building websites, editing clips, and just all around begging people to watch his podcast. If you feel even remotely bad for this person, then good, he did his job.

I know what you’re thinking… “Wow, that’s a nice head of hair!” Well, you are correct, and thank you.

More than a collection of thousands of pristinely styled protein follicles, Nate makes up exactly one half of the Nat1 Presents team. No more, no less. Perfectly in balance….

Just kidding. Known for his sharp wit and penchant for roleplay, Nate keeps the laughs coming by committing to his characters and taking them to the absolute extreme. Catch him on literally every episode of Nat1 because there’s only two members.
