Nick Swardson

Showing October 1

Every so often, a comedian comes along who emerges as a triple threat:  comedian, actor and writer/producer. Nick Swardson is one of the most exciting artists to have taken on this role. Most recently in 2013, Nick performed in “Grown Ups 2,” the sequel to the hit film “Grown Ups” in which Nick also performed, and “Back in the Day” in 2014.
 
The road to success has been a steady climb for Swardson, who started his career in St. Paul/  Minneapolis, then on to New York and  Los Angeles, where he first struck feature success in writing "Malibu's Most Wanted" for Warner Brother Studios, 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 BoyBenchwarmers, and co-producing I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry with Adam Sandler and Kevin James. More recently Nick has performed in movies such as That’s My BoyBlades of Glory30 Minutes or Less, and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, which he wrote, acted, and produced. His first CD/DVD, Party, on Comedy Central Records (produced by Happy Madison) went Platinum, which he followed up in 2010 with his first one-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central.
 
In addition to his career in film and in the world of Stand Up Comedy, Nick continues to have a prolific career in television. His Comedy Central sketch show, "Pretend Time with Nick Swardson” ran from 2010 to 2012, and this past year he voiced the role of TROY on FXX’s animated show, CHOZEN. Nick is currently shooting the feature film, Pixels, from Columbia Films, starring Adam Sandler and Josh Gad.
