Whether he's stealing scenes in hilarious movies such as Grandma's Boy, playing peculiar characters like the questionably gay Rollerblading criminal Terry in Comedy Central's "Reno 911," or just waxing philosophical about things like cargo pants on stage, NICK SWARDSON is a comic favorite. Unique in a way that's difficult to define, he can make material about beer and weed somehow original by channeling his oddball party-boy persona to perfection. Though his sexual preference may be in doubt, his sense of humor's certainly not. He'll be at the Tabernacle for one night only Sat., SEPT. 27. $30. 7:30 p.m. 152 Luckie St. 404-659-9022. www.ticketmaster.com.
