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 take on these roles. In addition to his roles of co-creator and star of COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time” series, he has just completed a role in “Grown Ups 2″ which releases in Summer of 2013.
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 Boy,” “Benchwarmers” and co-producing “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” with 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. Nick followed this up with the release of his second CD on COMEDY CENTRAL Records, simply titled, “Seriously, Who Farted?”
