Nick Swardson, 'Chelsea Lately'Nick Swardson's latest film project is titled 'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.' While his aspirations didn't follow that of the title character, who sought stardom in the porn industry, we learned on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) that he and the character do share something.

When Chelsea Handler showed a picture of Swardson as a kid, he had a healthy pair of front teeth sticking out of his mouth, which Swardson said earned him the nickname Bucky. He's since grown into his teeth, but is still uncomfortable seeing himself on film.

Nick Swardson and Jimmy Fallon Debut Their New Performance Group (VIDEO)

Nick Swardson, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Just in case the whole television thing doesn't work out for Nick Swardson or Jimmy Fallon, they've developed a fall-back act on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). With their glow-in-the-dark costumes and strange performance, they looked ready to take 'America's Got Talent' by storm.

All they have to do is take turns delivering awkward raps that tell stories. While one guy raps, the other has to act out the stories and to make sure it's as awesome as it can be, make sure the other guy has no idea what you're going to say next.

It worked pretty well for a first run, thought the audience was rightly confused by what they were seeing. What did the costumes have to do with the act? Why was Fallon so stiff while delivering the lyrics. Where were the glow-in-the-dark props?

Danny McBride, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'If the folks behind the 'The Hangover' franchise are looking for a plot for their third installment, maybe they should just look at the behind-the-scenes antics of the making of '30 Minutes or Less.' Danny McBride was on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) and revealed what happened when co-star Nick Swardson finally agreed to go out drinking.

He'd resisted for a while, blaming several fasts, but when he finally said he was good to go, McBride said he saw why Swardson doesn't drink often.

"At one point, Aziz [Ansari] and I are in the back of the kitchen making sushi in some restaurant and a P.A. is bringing Nick in, who was sleeping against a street lamp outside," McBride explained. He then said they came to in a pool at 4:30 in the morning at a hotel none of them were staying at. And roll opening credits for 'The Hangover 3'!

Nick Swardson, 'Late Night with Jimmy FallonComedian Nick Swardson shared with Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on NBC) some of the inspiration he's gotten from this year's batch of Oscar-nominated films. According to the comedian, he's seen all of the films, and now he's got some future projects in the planning stages.

"I've got a movie coming out called 'Black Tron,'" he said. "It's a bunch of girls that make out on motorcycles while they throw frisbees." He had Jimmy and the audience on board for that first one, but lost them a bit with his second idea.

This one was "based on 'Inception,'" according to Swardson. "But I invade wet dreams. It's called 'Insertion.'"

'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time': An Ad That Solves Everything (VIDEO)

'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time': A Commercial That Solves Everything Television ads always feature products that promise to change our lives. As consumers, we get sucked in. We call the number on the screen, plunk down our credit card info, and wait a few days or a week. Then the much-hyped new product arrives and ... it's lame.

These ads just lead to disappointment. Be honest. Do you still wear your "Snuggie"? Or use your "Bedazzler," your "Flowbee," your "George Foreman Grill" -- or any of the hundred other things that were pitched so compellingly on late-night TV? No, of course you don't.

But the comedy series 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) intends to fix this problem. So the show presents us with an ad for something that will really solve everything.

Nick Swardson Loves Chuy on 'Chelsea Lately' and Crystal Meth (VIDEO)

Nick Swardson, 'Chelsea Lately'Nick Swardson was a man with a lot of love to give when he appeared on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM on E!). After briefly posing with Chelsea Handler herself, he shared a far more meaningful and affectionate embrace with Chuy Bravo.

"You two know each other?" Handler asked. Apparently, in Swardson's world, running into one another at a restaurant is enough to warrant a warm embrace upon your next encounter. He did a good job of driving the point home by resting his hand on Handler's and declaring, "I love him."

'Pretend Time': A Nightmare That Scares Even Freddy KruegerIn honor of Halloween, the sketch comedy show 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) presented a terrifying dream. Actually, it was more gross than terrifying. It was so awful that it freaked out Freddy Krueger.

At the beginning of the sketch, Nick Swardson struggled to stay awake. He needed to avoid deranged killer Freddy Kreuger, star of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' Nick failed and fell asleep anyway. Freddy entered Nick's dream, where he had the power to murder his victims.

Krueger caught Nick in bed with a sexy young woman (Natasha Leggero). The killer cackled in his trademark maniacal style: "Two dead bodies for the price of one!" ... Which is when things went very wrong.

But 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) isn't on network TV. It's on basic cable instead. And comedian Nick Swardson likes to take things ... a bit further.

Ryan Phillippe Meets a Gay Robot on 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson'Can a robot find true love with a Hollywood heartthrob? That's the question on the series premiere of 'Pretend Time With Nick Swardson' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central). "But wait," you're saying. "What's the deal with this show? And who is this 'Nick Swardson' person?"

Well, good question, you! Nicholas Robert "Nick" Swardson is a longtime stand-up comic and actor; he's most famous for his role on 'Reno 911!' And 'Pretend Time' is his new sketch comedy series. Even if you don't remember Nick, you'll probably recognize his guest star: Mr. Ryan Phillippe. The "hunky" actor is a fan of Swardson's unique brand of humor, so he agreed to show up for the premiere. But Ryan's reward for his generosity is to be hit on by a big gay robot.

Nick Swardson's Pretend TimeTrust me, after you watch the premiere of 'Nick Swardson's Pretend Time' (Tues., Oct. 12, 10PM ET on Comedy Central), the 'Wheelchair Cat' theme song and the phrase "powdered donuts make me go nuts" are going to be stuck in your head.

Swardson, of stand-up comedy and movie fame ('Blades of Glory,' 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,' 'You Don't Mess with the Zohan' and 'Benchwarmers'), also finally brings Gay Robot to the tube as a recurring character on the seven-episode first season of 'Pretend Time.' We'll also meet Wheelchair Cat (the feline who's living on a trust fund) and Garry Gaga, Lady Gaga's policeman brother who shares a sense of style with the pop star.

Swardson, who's best known to TV fans as 'Reno 911!''s roller-skatin', short-shorts-wearin' gay prostitute Terry Bernardino, talked to AOL TV about 'Pretend Time,' his thriving movie career (and upcoming co-star Heidi Montag), why we're not likely to find him on Twitter anytime soon and the origins of Terry, one of the greatest TV characters of all time.

Swardson scores sketch series

The man might have terrible taste in comedy special titles, but it's helped him score on his own little corner of the TV dial.

Comedian Nick Swardson has scored his own sketch comedy series on Comedy Central. The show will hit the air next year and feature a lot of digital shorts and animation, some of which will be based on almost Python-esque "Gay Robot" character. Swardson and Adam Sandler actually shot a pilot for his "Gay Robot" character years ago and thanks to the magic of YouTube, you can also enjoy it. Warning: if you're easily offended by jokes of a sexual nature, please get over yourself and grow a sense of humor before watching it.

Seriously, Who Farted ... seriously?!?

Nick Swardson's Seriously, Who Farted?Comedian man-child Nick Swardson has a new comedy special premiering this week called Seriously, Who Farted? I smell a Kennedy Center Honor (sniff, or is that a People's Choice Award?).

Now normally, I do like to literally judge something by its cover, but it's hard not to with a title like Seriously, Who Farted?. A title like that could be either the greatest or absolutely worst of anything of all time, whether it's a comedy special, video game, or brand of cereal. If it's a brand of cereal, then it would most likely be the worst.

So I asks ya...

Is "Seriously, Who Farted?" the greatest or worst title for a comedy special of all time?

A second look at Reno 911!, season six

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 9th 2009 2:04PM
Reno 911!When I first wrote about the cast changes for season six of Reno 911!, a few readers were disappointed that their favorite deputies were killed in a tragic taco stand explosion. Clementine (Wendi McLendon-Covey), Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui), and Kimball (Mary Birdsong) all died, and were replaced this season with Deputy Frank Rizzo (Joe Lo Truglio) and Sergeant Jack Declan (Ian Roberts).

Clementine and Garcia were both part of the show since the beginning, and were often the most appealing characters on the show. The racial tension between Garcia and Deputy Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) was a fun plotline, and Clementine's undercover pot bust at a head shop was one of my favorite scenes. Kimball came aboard in season three, and had her adherents, as well.

Gay Robot could become a cartoon - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted May 25th 2007 6:40PM

gay robotIn 2005, a series called Gay Robot, based on a track from an Adam Sandler comedy album, was pitched to Comedy Central. The titular character was voiced by comedian Nick Swardson and the series was produced, in part, by Swardson and Sandler.

Comedy Central passed on the pilot, but new scuttlebutt has it that the series may see the light of day after all, but as an animated series rather than a live-action one. There hasn't been any official announcement in regards to this, so we'll just have to wait and see.
