Nick Griffin can't get no love.


Many of Nick Griffin's jokes stem from a bygone era. "When I was in my 20s and saw a beautiful girl, I was like, 'Oh, I gotta get that,'" says the thirtysomething comedian. "Now I'm like, 'I'll never get that. Young girls are filled with sugar and spice and everything nice, and I'm filled with anger and semen and shame.'"

To keep busy during the 23 hours each day he's not onstage, Grffin writes screenplays "that don't sell," he says. "You're on the road, and you're in the middle of Boise, Idaho. You can only masturbate so many times before you go crazy."
