From the comedy club stage to the big screen, Nick Swardson has found his way to the T.V. screen in his own show, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time. Nick Swardson, comedian, actor, writer and producer, takes his goofy, off beat humor to a unique sketch comedy show bringing his jokes to life. Each episode is framed by a comedy routine.

Swardson starts by performing jokes in front of a crowd in a typical comedy club atmosphere, then the show cuts away to recorded sketches starring Nick and a cast of regular supporting actors and guest stars. Pretend Time showcased several of Swardson's own characters, such as Wheelchair Cat and Gay Robot, as well as poked fun at existing characters through parody sketches. Swardson often was not shown onscreen during sketches, and he would instead provide the voice over for characters, such as Wheelchair Cat. The show aired for two season with seven episodes per season.
