Nick Swardson Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Saturday, October 11th, 2014, Nick Swardson is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
Nick Swardson is the latest comedian to emerge as a triple threat: comedian, actor and writer/producer. He began doing stand-up at the age of 18, and within one year he was chosen to perform at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Over the next couple of years Nick established himself in some of the major clubs across the country. He then moved to New York and became a regular at the Comic Strip, Caroline’s and Luna Lounge. He also compiled numerous appearances on “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Real Time with Bill Maher” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.”
In 2000 he hit a milestone in his career when he taped his Comedy Central half-hour special at the age of 22 (the youngest to do so). Nick then moved to L.A. to focus on his acting and writing. In the summer of 2003 Warner Brothers green-lit a script Nick wrote with Jamie Kennedy called “Suckaz,” which then became “Malibu’s Most Wanted.” The film did triple its cost in the box office and brought Nick to another level.
Nick wrote and starred in the Happy Madison-produced films “Grandma’s Boy” and “Benchwarmers.” Happy Madison also produced Nick’s first CD and DVD release, “Party.” His other film credits include “Art School Confidential” directed by Terry Zwigoff, “Blades of Glory” with Will Ferrell and “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” with Adam Sandler. In 2009, Nick completed his first starring role in the Columbia Pictures feature “Born to Be a Star,” which he co-wrote and produced with Sandler and Allen Covert.
