Nick Swardson

Every so often, a comedian comes along who emerges as a triple threat: comedian, actor and writer / producer. Nick Swardson is the latest and most exciting artist to watch this happen to. He has just completed his first starring role in an untitled Happy Madison project slated for release April 22, 2011. Swardson co-wrote (with Adam Sandler and Allen Covert) as well as produced the movie. Additionally, he performed in his first full-length one-hour stand up special for Comedy Central, and simultaneously will release his second CD on Comedy Central Records, simply titled, Seriously, Who Farted?

The road to success has been a steady climb for wardson, who started his career in the twin cities, then on to New York, and on to Los Angeles, where he first struck feature success in writing Malibu's Most Wanted for Warner Bros., which starred Jamie Kennedy. After catching the attention of Happy Madison Productions, he quickly became a fixture in the company, writing or co-writing and producing such projects as Grandma's Boy, The Benchwarmers, and co-producing I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James. His first CD / DVD, Party, on Comedy Central Records (produced by Happy Madison), has sold tremendously and the DVD was just certified platinum.

Swardson also stars in the Comedy Central sketch series Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, which will soon return with a second season. Other film credits for Swardson include Art School Confidential directed by Terry Zwigoff, Blades of Glory with Will Ferrell, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and You Don't Mess with the Zohan with Adam Sandler. In television, he has a noted recurring role of Terry in Reno 911.
