As a recent divorcé, Nick Griffin revels in a life of dirty laundry, frozen pizza and porno. “It’s like being a private eye, without any cases,” exclaims the comedian. Then again, bachelorhood has its drawbacks. “You’re only single in your 20s. When you’re 30 — you’re alone,” gripes Griffin. If only Charlize Theron would have sex with him. Despite life’s woes, Griffin smirks, throws up his hands and kills the crowd with his self-deprecating style.
