  • Nathan Fielder and William Heath in Downtown Wigs & Fashions at 305 Main Street, Little Rock.

“Finding Frances,” the biting season finale of Comedy Central’s “Nathan For You,” doubled as a tour through downtown Little Rock, with stops at The Studio Theatre, Stickyz Rock ’n’ Roll Chicken Shack, Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro and the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport by way of a plot device that started with Nathan’s discovery of a 1957 yearbook from the Desha County town of Dumas (and prompted the inclusion of the song “I’m a Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas” and an imagined sequel to Jeff Nichols’ “Mud,” called “Mud 2: Never Cleaner”). Nathan Fielder sets out on a quest to help a fledgling Bill Gates impersonator Bill Heath (who plays himself) locate a lost love, Frances Gaddy.

The way “Nathan For You” straddles the line between humor and desperation is reason enough to check out “Nathan For You,” but there are some real Easter eggs in the finale for Arkansas natives, too: an arcane reference to the “Game of the Century,” the 1969 Texas vs. Arkansas Cotton Bowl Classic faceoff at Fayetteville’s Razorback Stadium; a drive by Central High School; a Downtown Wigs & Fashions cameo.

The entire 83-minute episode is available to stream at cc.com/shows/nathan-for-you.
