Who is the narrator of HBO Max's '12 Dates of Christmas'?

The eight-episode HBO Max series is narrated by Natasha Rothwell. The AV Club describes Natasha as a stand-in for viewers. "She's watching all of this while drinking wine and eating popcorn just like the rest of us," the outlet writes, "self-deprecatingly poking fun at her own love life."

She makes hilarious quips and punny comments, like, "Will they sleigh goodbye or live merrily ever after?"

And while Natasha is no stranger to adding commentary on dating shows like this one, having already voiced some of the best reality series of 2020, it turns out that she's also been on HBO before. She's Issa's hilarious friend Kelli on Insecure, a show she's also a writer and supervising producer on.

Where have you seen or heard Natasha Rothwell before?

"After I moved to New York, I basically was working there as a high school theater teacher for like, four years," the classically trained actress told People over the summer about how she began her career. "And I was doing comedy by night and teacher by day, as this very weird superhero."

She went on to stress the importance of sharing stories of the Black experience in the Hollywood industry today. "I think so often there's a very narrow view of what people can accept as our stories, and I think it comes from the top down as far as what is allowed to see the light of day," she told the outlet.

"I want to continue to tell stories that are unique, that are diverse, and that can show us in lights that we haven't had shined on us," the 12 Dates of Christmas narrator continued.

You can catch Natasha in the upcoming Baby Shark's Big Show! where she is set to play Mommy Shark, as well as a TV mini-series called The White Lotus.

And if you're obsessed with her voice-over work (who isn't?), may we recommend Bob's Burgers' "Now We're Not Cooking with Gas," where she plays the firefighter, and BoJack Horseman's "Time's Arrow," where she voices the character of Clemelia Bloodsworth?

12 Dates of Christmas is now streaming on HBO Max.
