Interview: Nick Swardson
Monday, October 11 by

A few months back I had the opportunity to visit the set of Nick Swardson's new Comedy Central show "Pretend Time." When I arrived, the comedian was a wearing a crimson red hat and veil, not unlike Lady Gaga. He also donned a police uniform, badge, and department issued handgun. Even though the shoot was taking place in cuckoo bananas Hollywood, something seemed amiss. Turns out Swardson was playing Lady Gaga's brother, Gary Gaga, just a guy trying to keep it real while keeping the streets safe. 
After Swardson completed a standard traffic stop in front of confused passersby, I sat down with him to discuss his new sketch show, as well as some upcoming features. Luckily he had taken off the gaudy Gaga attire, so I could concentrate on the task at hand.
