Nick Offerman has gifted the world with another Reddit AMA, following the amazing and enlightening one he did almost two years ago. According to his bio, Offerman directed the next episode of Parks & Recreation airing on April 10th, which he gets a bit more into below. Let’s jump in, shall we? Oh yeah, and cool hat:


Welcome to reddit! I painted this for you :)

Thank you, that is magnificent and confusing! I look like I am being anally probed in each iteration, which is good, as I am of an age whereupon I should have my prostate checked regularly. Which reminds me – if you haven’t seen John Mulaney’s bit on Xanax, youtube that badboy, it’s goddamn triumphant.


and i drew this! should be named shitty markers lol

I am honored.


I drew you nothing, but this picture is nice!

EDIT: note to self, find nicer pictures in the future…

I have seen nicer. You should look at more pictures.


Mr. Offerman, what was it like to work on 21 Jump Street with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill (and Ice Cube!)? And are you going to be in 22 Jump Street as well?

On both Jump Street films, I worked the very first day of production, and my scenes will serve a similar purpose in both films: to send these 2 lovable jackanapes bounding off into inglorious fortune. They are sweet as pie, and we have a very good time giggling and improvising, whilst fingering each others tickle-spots.

What is the best advice ever given to you?

1) Find work that you love to do, and then find a way to get paid to do that work. 2) Always maintain the attitude of a student. If you think you’ve done learning, bitterness sets in, but if you have more to achieve every day, in any arena, that makes each morning’s awakening full of potential and cheery portent.



Hey Nick! I saw you at the Canadian Canoe Museum last year and your Q&A was hilarious and informative. My question is about the very gorgeous Mrs Offerman. How’d you guys meet? What’s her stance on canoes?

We met in the theatre in Los Angeles, our company the Evidence Room. Her stance on canoes is, of course, seated. One should not stand on canoes. She loves to paddle just like her dear old husband, and boy, howdy, does she look good doing it.
