NEW YORK, Sept. 20 -- It's time to pretend with Nick Swardson!

"Nick Swardson's Pretend Time" is a sketch show in which each sketch is filtered through the absurd point-of-view of stand-up comedian Nick Swardson. Swardson takes the viewer into his goofy world through a series of sketches including the adventures of a jealous man whose mother left her estate to the family cat as well as sketches inspired by the Internet sensation "Gay Robot," which follows the life of a gay robot and his frat boy friends. Swardson's world of make-believe incorporates every reach of the imagination -- from time travel accidents to a pirate crew's unfortunately located treasure map.

Online, the "Nick Swardson's Pretend Time" site on comedycentral.com will feature episode previews, highlights, uncensored versions of show sketches and a flip book of Swardson's many characters. Additionally, fans of the series can interact with the show on Facebook, where Nick will be posting updates and messages.
