Nick Swardson announces the end of his “Pretend Time” sketch show on Comedy Central

Nick Swardson announced the end of his Comedy Central sketch comedy show, Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time, after its second season.

Swardson told his Facebook friends on Tuesday night:

“I regret to inform everyone Pretend Time is over. The ratings were solid but it was too expensive for the network and tough creatively. I thank all who supported it. Really means the world to me. I have such awesome fans. I am developing a new show where I play a ninja. Seriously. Cheers everyone. Love ya.”

Here’s a clip of Swardson as Lady Gaga’s cop brother, Garry Gaga, to remember the series by. Roll it.
