Comedian Natasha Rothwell Takes Basic Bitchery To New, Hilarious Heights

Last week, Netflix premiered new comedy series The Characters, and based Natasha Rothwell basically stole the show. She told The Decider that working with Netflix was a “dream come true.”

Her whole episode is amazing, but her ode to basic bitches takes it over the top.

Rothwell says the “fantasy rap” was fun to shoot.

The comedic idea of just celebrating what it means to be basic and not thinking of that as a negative but celebrating all the things that, again, bring us together, whether that’s shopping at Forever 21 or drinking Diet Coke like it’s water (laughs). It was really fun to dig into that and capture that.
