THANKS EVERYONE, I GOTTA RUN. I TRIED TO ANSWER EVERYTHING. MANY BLESSINGS. FART.

Q:

What is the most fucked up thing that a fan has done/tried to do to you?

A:

Someone sent me a Barbie doll once that had my head on it.


Q:

What's the favorite thing you have done so far in your career?

A:

Grandma's Boy and Bucky Larson. But I'm proud of all of it. Zero regrets in roles.


Q:

How is Gay Robot doing these days?

A:

He's surviving. Bless his metal gay heart.


Q:

I know you're a huge Minnesota sports guy, and as an LA Clippers fan, I'm also an alcoholic. So my question for you is what's the best way to numb the pain?

A:

I like the Clippers. Bummed Redick is gone.


Q:

I love you Nick Swardson. I sent you a pint of my blood. Did you get my blood?

A:

Copy that. Got it right here. Chugging it.


Q:

What's the most effective way to mask the sound of a fart?

A:

Yell "fire"


Q:

Hey Nick! Thanks for doing this. You've worked a lot with Adam Sandler over the years. There's a lot of critics who haven't been so kind to his films from the last decade or so. Do you think they're being unfair, or maybe missing out on what he's going for? Also, what do you enjoy about working with him?

A:

Critics attack him. Makes no sense. He truly makes movies that make him laugh and that he knows his fans will like. He's genuine guy. He's a legend. You look at his body of work. Albums, SNL, all the movies. Annoys me when people shit on him. Everyone has an opinion but comedy is subjective. If you don't like him, move on. Critics like to feel like they've accomplished something taking shots at him.


Q:

Hey nick! Big fan of your tv show Pretend Time. Sad it was cancelled. So, my question would be: What is your daily morning routine? And, am i still creepy?

A:

Depends. I tour a lot. Write every day. Try to work out. Some weeks I'll just get hammered. Depends on my mood and whether I have to fart.


Q:

just was listening to you on Joe Rogan's podcast!

Please come to NC or SC on your tour soon, would love to check you out.

any plans for a Grandma's Boy 2?

A:

No GB2. We just don't want to taint the first one and I might be in SC soon. My boy Danny McBride just moved there.


Q:

I saw you at my school years ago. A girl in the back kept screaming "take off your pants." You compared her to a pterodactyl and told her not to have children until she is elderly. Do you remember this?

Also, which side character of yours from an Adam Sandler movie most deserves a spinoff?

A:

Haha. Sounds about right. And Billy Madison or Wedding Singer.


Q:

Can the Vikings be the first team in NFL history to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium this year? Is Bradford or Bridgewater the future of the Vikings?

A:

Ugh, that's tough. We could be a sleeper this year. It's all O line. And we'll see about Teddy's knee. I like him a lot but that injury was horrendous.


Q:

How bad is your diarrhea?

A:

Volcanic mess


Q:

Do you like ponies?

A:

A lot. too much


Q:

Who looks better in the nude: Meatsauce or Mark Rosen?

Fuck. too many. He's hilarious. We always laugh a lot. I've truly never gotten a long with anyone so well.


Q:

Grandma's boy is in my top 5 fave comedy flicks of all time! my question is: is there plans for a blu-ray release? My DVD looks like poop on my nice tv.

Those two and Danny McBride.

A:

Haven't yet today. Might start to worry.


Q:

At what age did you start comedy? And As a stand up comedian how long was it in your career before you could call yourself successful?

A:

Started at 19 and success is subjective. Maybe 23 years old I started to feel confident about not sleeping in an alley.


Q:

Whats the worst poop you ever took? Please specify the reason for the disaster poop and location of deification.

A:

I took a shit in Vegas that looked like green alien barf. It's amazing what drinking a lot does to your body. So bad for you but still sweet. In moderation.


Q:

Am I out of line when i say the vikes are going 16-0 this year? cuz i dont think so. Im ready to skol my dick off this season

A:

Bless your heart.


Q:

Any advice for new comedians?

Write every day. Be original. Find your voice, that'll take years. Commit your life to it with no guarantees and smile through bombing.

Robots, man, robots.

Always and forever

Exactly

Q:

If you wernt an actor what job do u think youd have/want?
