Erik Charles Nielsen’s stand-up TV debut on Conan

You may have seen Erik Charles Nielsen before on your TV from time to time as one of the other students at Greendale Community College on NBC’s Community, or earlier this year as a Twitter tormenter of Marc Maron on IFC’s Maron.

Here’s something you hadn’t seen until now: Erik Charles Nielsen performing stand-up on the TV. Nielsen made his stand-up debut last night on Conan, and forever makes us rethink what we mean when we talk about drag queens, Donkey Kong or the 1980s song, “It’s Raining Men.”

Today in much of America, it’s simply raining rain. So much the better, right?

Roll the clip!
