Nick Swardson Goes All The Way In Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star

By

Nick Swardson is, hands down, one of my favorite stand-ups of all time. As far as I’m concerned, we should all be mailing him personal checks every month as a thank you for bringing Reno 911’s Terri into existence. So to see him plowing through something like the Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star trailer, well, it just strikes me as a deep disturbance in the order of the universe. Co-written by Adam Sandler and produced by Happy Madison, Bucky follows the trials and travails of an Iowa grocery boy as he travels to Hollywood to find stardom after learning his parents were porn stars. Clearly, there is comedy gold in throwing innocent naivety into a giant cesspool of raunch (See also: Orgazmo) But why oh why did they have make that wig and those Chiclet the focal point of his character? Why didn’t they just make a Terri movie like we all wanted them to? Please put these questions, and more, on my gravestone. That being said, that’s a solid kitty porn joke… I’m clearly still going to see this.
