It's always a party with comedian Nick Swardson who stops by the garage for a talk about fireworks, Sandler movies, and marrying Ving Rhames. It'll be a welcome relief for Marc, who spent two days in the desert trying to find spiritual fulfilment by the Joshua Tree. Find out if he still hasn't found what he's looking for.

    Hi MarcMaron ....

    Thank you for your constant up-dates! My comment is attached to another's:

    "I've always liked Nick's stand-up and his appearances, but never realized he's utterly incapable of speaking a single sentence without "um, y'know, like," etc." ....

    (me).... and the word, "fuck" and it's derivatives.

    Peace

    Freaking great guest and interview. I'm sure the people driving next to me thought I was crazy laughing hysterically. I also think Marc should reach out to Sandler. Just sayin'

    I think something was wrong with the audio in this episode, I could hear Marc perfectly but Swardson sounded like he was being interviewed from deep inside some kind of enclosed storage apparatus. A pantry, perhaps? Or maybe a cabinet. Oh wait actually I think I know, a closet, a big ol' closet!
    To be serious though, I believe everyone who knows Swardson is well aware that he's gay, but publicly however I think its hilarious that he continually puts himself in these roles. But hey, he's also a documented sexist douche, kinda disappointed Marc didn't touch on this, but oh wells...

    -JESUS OUT!

    Dear Marc, I wish you'd asked him about his multiple visits to the well for humor about gay culture and gay people. I would have loved to hear him talk about that, e.g. what is his motivation for writing and/or performing those sort of characters and how he defines his personal perspective on that issue, since a lot of that style of humor can come across as gay mistrelsy.

    Yeah, i wasn't sure who this guy was either till i herd the Reno 911 reference. How do people get that "high" off of sports?! I mean, i get it, but its like he was describing doing heroin or something. I liked how you kept prodding him though!

    Loved the manager stories and alcoholism banter.

    I did a car sauna today, and felt better from my perpetual hangover. We need more alcoholism tips.

    Marc, lot of interesting stuff as usual. Unfortunately, I'm still out of a job, and I've got to cancel my subscription. When I have a job, I'll catch up on the podcast.

    Swardson is awesome, so is Kroll though...one of my favorite WTF episodes is the "el chupacabra" one. My favorite part is the thing about the monkey picking people off from the top of a billboard, then Mark says "don't the police do anything", and and el chupacabra says "et eh, the police have proved to be indifferent to the plight of the people they are paid to protect"....this is funny every time I hear it.

    I've always liked Nick's stand-up and his appearances, but never realized he's utterly incapable of speaking a single sentence without "um, y'know, like," etc.

    Great show! Swardson is always funny.
    Next time try the 'Burroughs Motel' in DHS.
    It's the next best thing to Tangiers.

    Viva La Chupacabra!

    I would love if Marc would do a spot on Fallon. His Conan interviews are as good as it gets. Hope it happens some time.

    This was a great interview. Nick Swardson was very funny & open. He had a great rapport with Marc & it was excellent to listen to.

    I wasn't sure who this dude was ... I kept thinking he was the guy who plays Ron on Parks and Recreation. And then when you said he wrote Grandma's Boy, I thought he was that guy who's Adam Sandler's professional best friend (you know who I mean, don't make me google it).

    you getting stuck on jumbo rock reminded me of this time i got stuck in a tree as a child. climbing up was fun but then when i looked down i was Terrified. i stayed up there for about six hours...crying...afraid...then my friends dad got home from work & insisted on helping me down--i responded with a kind of "look friends dad...let's not be silly...i can live up here. it's okay!" then i cried more. eventually...i don't know...i realized that i was just six feet off the ground & that if i fell it probably (probably) wouldn't be that big of a deal...& maybe i'd get some candy. then i climbed down. ......just took a whole lot of fear & crying first. mostly still like that today. nice podcast
