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, Nick performed in Grown Ups 2 and Grown Ups. 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 Warner Bros. Malibu's Most Wanted, which starred Jamie Kennedy. After catching the attention of Happy Madison Productions, he quickly became a fixture in the company, writing, co-writing or producing such projects as Grandma's Boy, Benchwarmers, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Nick also performs in movies such includng 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.
