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 SwardsonWhile Terry isn't going to be cuffed on 'Reno 911!' any longer, the comedian who plays him is getting his own Comedy Central series. A sketch comedy show featuring Nick Swardson will debut next year, according to Comedy Central.

"I'm very excited to be working with Comedy Central," said Swardson in a press release. "They are great people who understand me creatively. They also are very good looking ... a lot of 8 and 9's in the office; guys are probably in the 4's."

The half-hour series will include Swardson's digital shorts, man-on-the-street segments and irreverent animation, including his "Gay Robot" series, which follows the life of a gay robot and his frat-boy friends.

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.
