Nick Swardson killed at the Vic Theatre last night during the Just For Laughs Chicago comedy festival. I particularly liked this story:
My agent calls me a few years ago and says he's having people over. So I go to his house and I'm hanging out, having a beer. A teenage kid comes up to me and says, "Hey, weren't you in Blades of Glory?" I say yeah. He goes, "Say that line!" I'm like, "Sorry?" He goes, "You know... 'I want to cut off your skin and wear it to my birthday.' " So I say it. He goes, "No, say it like you said it in the movie!" I'm like, "What?!" but I say it like I said it in the movie. Then he goes, "Say that other line: 'I want to wear your gold medal naked.' " So I say it. And he goes, "No, say it like you said it in the movie!" So I say it like I said it in the movie. He's like, "Awesome" and he walks away. I turn to my agent and I go "Who was that kid?" and my agent says, "We just signed him. He's going to be the biggest thing in the NHL. His name is Patrick Kane."
