In Comedy Central's new series "Big Lake," comedian and actor Chris Gethard plays a guy trying to scheme his way out of unemployment while living in his parent's basement. Though we're pretty sure Gethard's somewhat less pathetic than the character he plays, he nevertheless felt compelled to visit New York City's Financial District in hopes of finding out what it takes to be a success.

"Big Lake" airs on Comedy Central Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
