Nick was born in Minneapolis, the USA in 1976 October. His parents Pamela and Roger Eric Swardson named him Nicholas Roger Swardson at birth. He has two other siblings, a brother named John and a sister named Rachel. He grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His father was a journalist who worked for various papers and journals. Nick’s parents divorced in 1989.
Nick Swardson dealt with the issues of alcohol and drug addiction growing up. He attended St. Paul Central High School in Minnesota. At school, he was labeled as a very mischievous student.
He used to play pranks at school which didn’t take him in the good lists. The school suspended and expelled him four times from school for various reasons. One instance, just to go out and smoke cigarettes, Nick pulled the fire alarm at school. Perhaps due to these kinds of behavior, he ended up in rehab while still at school.
After completing his high school, Nick decided to start his career in stand up comedy rather than going to college. Which is why he started performing stand-up at the age of 18 in comedy clubs. His career in standup is what ultimately lead him to his film roles.
Nick has always been private about his personal life and wants to keep it that way. We don’t know yet if he is a relationship with someone or married. As he stays busy with his stand up tours, it is highly unlikely that he has been married. One he tweeted this:
I don't want to get married solely for the moment when my wife turns 60 and gets that short, awkward, Peter Pan haircut.
