Comedian Nick Griffin has a dilemma. He enjoys a steady gig, like writing for TV or radio, but as soon as he’s settled in he misses being on the road. "I think it's the devil, you know," he says. "I talk to comics all the time, obviously, and I’ll be sitting in a comedy club with three or four guys and it’s all the same: You go out on the road two, three, four weeks in a row, and you're like, 'I gotta get back,' and when you do get home you're like, 'God, what am I doing here I don't know how to live.' " The economy has kept Griffin on the road more than he'd like. When not touring he's doing as many as three shows a night all over New York City, where he can also pop on The Late Show with David Letterman from time to time. "That's the great thing about New York City," he says. "You've got subways and great transportation, so you can do three shows a night if you really want to. It's a numbers game really. You're gonna get better the more you're on stage."
