Comedian Nick Swardson Brings 'Too Many Smells' Tour to Aztec Theatre

A comedy Rorschach test: According to Netflix executives, the biggest opening for any movie on the streaming site was for The Ridiculous Six, Adam Sandler’s purposefully idiotic and offensive Western parody that boasts a zero percent “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes and features Vanilla Ice as Mark Twain.

If any part of that sentence made you laugh, let alone the movie itself, you’ll probably get a kick out of Nick Swardson, who co-stars in the film as well as many other Sandler posse productions including Grandma’s Boy and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, which he also co-wrote.

To put it another way, using titles alone you can pretty much map the evolution of Swardson’s stand-up act from his 2009 special Seriously, Who Farted? to 2015’s Taste It to his current tour Too Many Smells. If, like critic Debbie Day, you think “The Ridiculous Six is everything wrong with Hollywood for the past two decades,” you’ll probably spend the whole time rolling your eyes. But have you ever stopped to consider that maybe you’re the one who farted?

$28-$39.50, Sat April 14, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. Saint Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355,
