Owner of Dumb Starbucks REVEALED
Hundreds gather at faux coffee shop to hear Nathan Fielder speak
Rumors have been swirling about Dumb Starbucks all weekend. Was it an art piece? Is Banksy in L.A.? Is a comedien behind this? Was Hollywood taking a publicity stunt too far? Or was Starbucks itself just trying to be funny?
Today at 4 p.m., Nathan Fielder took to a podium outside of his Dumb Starbucks to announce that the joke was on us. Fielder, a Canadian comedian and writer, is the producer and star of the show Nathan for You. Its first season premiered on Comedy Central last year, and it has been renewed for a second.
Fielder's next trick? To open a Dumb Starbucks in Brooklyn. Your move, Starbucks.
