Nick Offerman has been performing his one-man show at college campuses around this great nation, and while he has a certain onstage persona, it's not the exact character audiences are expecting. "At most of these schools, the students run the activities board," he tells The Believer. "A lot of the requests will say things like 'We don’t even care if Nick Offerman shows up. We just want Ron Swanson.' They say things that they clearly don't understand might be hurtful." Why are you hurting Nick Offerman, college students? Why?
