Nick Swardson, for those of you not familiar, is funnier than you. That’s pretty much all you need to know to enjoy his latest Comedy Central Special, Seriously, Who Farted?, as LAist was invited to do. Believe me when I say, if you have an even vague notion of who Swardson is before watching this special, you will be quite familiar with him once the hour is over. And if you are completely blanking on one of the best young funny men of this decade, don’t worry, he’s more than happy filling in those blanks for you.

Maybe because it’s filmed in Austin, Texas (where the young, hip, college vibe suits him perfectly), or maybe because when the special was taped in April, Reno 911! hadn’t been canceled yet, Nick certainly steps on stage with a swagger that wasn’t there a few years ago. Either way, this new Nick plows headlong into how drunk he gets and whips out a few handjob stories along the way. Again, he’s willing to fill in the blanks.
