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. He is best known for his recurring role as Terry Bernadino in the comedy series Reno 911! and, this fall, he'll be embarking on his "Taste It" tour with a stop in Reno on Friday, November 7.
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. More recently Nick has performed in movies such as “That’s My Boy,” “Blades of Glory,” “30 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, “Seriously who Farted.”
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.
