  ''I'm kind of a cosmic nudge... A magician, a trickster. Don't think of me as intellectual content, I'm a cosmic entertainer."

 

 

  The hints are the boldened parts. 

  The guy borrowed the term from computation, for example, I have read in the Web that "nudges are a new feature in MSN Messenger 7 which are used to get your contact's attention, similar to Yahoo's 'buzz' feature."

  So, back to the crux of the matter; the guy is an attention seeker, an entertainer, one that craves attention and/or popularity.

  This might be a computer´s wizzes language and the term might not yet got to Dictionaries.  In other words, I think it is not often used outside informal circles.
