“I was talking to a friend of mine this week,” says comedian Nick Griffin, “and he said, ‘Nick, remember, no matter how bad it gets, there’s always someone worse off than you.’ So, now I’m depressed and worried about this other poor guy.” Such is life for the Kansas City native, who really only understands one subject: himself. “I try to get as personal with my own life as I can because I don’t know about anything else,” he says.
“Lately I’ve been talking about being depressed a lot (laughs).”
He actually does know a little about other people, as he explains, “I’m also talking about having to deal with other people and how in a hurry everyone is. They’re freaking me out a little bit because I don’t have to be anywhere at any time. I’m a comic. I have to be on stage one hour a night. The rest of the time is mine. There are people in the front row of shows now texting some friend, who is two blocks away, in between jokes. You can’t have one second of free time on your hands?” Griffin performs Thursday-Sunday at Go Bananas. $8-$15.
