Natasha Leggero Once Moved to Australia With a Con Artist

Another Period is one of our favorite shows. Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome have created a completely bonkers world that somehow totally works. They describe it as combining the Kardashians with Downton Abbey, but also like to think of it as having a liberal dash of Drunk History too, as dysfunctional versions historical figures frequently pop up to interact with Beatrice, Lillian, and all the other Bellacourts. Need proof? In the premiere of the second season, Beatrice and Lillian received advice on fame and branding from none other than Harriet Tubman. Seriously, if you’re not watching it yet, go check it out immediately!

Natasha appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote the show, but somehow mostly ended up talking about the time she lived in Australia when she was 21 years old. She’d moved there to be with a guy who she thought was rich, but who was actually just a very low-level con artist. We love the way Natasha tells a story and even though it wasn’t exactly a good experience for her, it definitely makes for a hilarious tale in retrospect.
