Natasha Leggero and Moshe Kasher’s upcoming Netflix special isn’t just a special. It’s a three-parter, with both of them doing their own individual half-hour specials about their marriage and their impending parenthood (Leggero was very pregnant when they shot this), before reuniting for a third half-hour called “The Couple’s Roast.” That third special is exactly what it sounds like: they invite couples up on stage, ask a few questions about their lives and relationships, and then roast them. And that’s where we meet Kat and Sebastian, the stars of this exclusive clip we’re sharing with you today.
Did Kat and Sebastian realize they were going to wind up on Netflix when they went to the comedy show that night in Austin? They might’ve realized there was a good chance of popping up in a crowd shot or two, but did they suspect they’d be brought up on stage so Leggero and Kasher, professional married comedians and expert roasters, could grill them on their private lives? Are Kat and Sebastian even their real names, or, realizing that knowing one’s true name gives you power over them, did they think fast enough on the spot to make up believable fake names? (As Kasher’s reaction attests, Sebastian might be too believable of a name for our friend here.) Are they prepared for their names and faces to be splashed all over not just Netflix, but in posts like this one, on websites like ours, and then linked to every kind of social network by our indefatigable social media editor? Do Kat and Sebastian, if that is their real names, know what they’re in for?
This is Kat and Sebastian’s moment. Let’s hope they’re ready for it.
