Comedian Nick Swardson Announces Taste It Tour

LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — 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. This fall, he’ll be embarking on his
Taste It
tour with tickets going on sale July 18, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Nick’s 40+ date tour will conclude in Austin, Texas where he’ll be filming his special!

Tickets can be purchased at

The road to success has been a steady climb for Nick, 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, The Benchwarmers and co-producing I Now Pronounce You Chuck & 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
Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time
ran from 2010 to 2012, and this past year he voiced the role of Troy on FXX’s animated show, Chozen. Most recently in 2013, Nick performed in Grown Ups 2, the sequel to the hit film Grown Ups in which he also performed, and Back in the Day in 2014.

Nick is currently shooting the feature film Pixels from Columbia Pictures, starring Adam Sandler and Josh Gad.
