Dick Hardwick

  • Comedian
  • Musician
  • Television/Stage/Film Performer
Dick Hardwick's comedy is unique!  Hardwick will tell you with a twinkle in his eyes, "I can do an entire routine without using a four letter work."  That's a big part of why his wholesome, zany routines are in constant demand for conventions, meeting and Hollywood events. Working clean is very natural to this hard-working comedian.

Dick, also an accomplished musician, played on "The Missing Years," John Prine's record which received the Grammy Award for "Best Folk album."  When doing his stand up, the audience is amazed at how many instruments he can skillfully slip into the performance.

As Dick Hardwick's interest in comedy and music grew, you would find him playing drummer in a rock-and-roll band, playing Dixieland at Molly's Irish Pub in the French Quarter of New Orleans, touring with Jerry Van Dyke or star of Disney's Golden Horseshoe Review.

Exciting things began to happen after Dick became a comedy champion on Ed McMahon's Star Search.  He was in Jackie Gleason's last movie, Nothing in Common, with Tom Hanks.  You have seen him with the Statler Brothers, VH1 comedy shorts, the Family Channels' Stand Up Comics Take A Stand and The Fox Network's Comedy Express.

"What impressed us the most, as you emceed our Top Ten event, was how much you genuinely cared about each of the people you introduced. You showed respect and admiration for all the efforts of our winning managers. And, you were funny!"

"Hardwick has built up a very profitable career since he got on the corporate track in the mid-80's. The Indiana native's profanity-free humor is a throwback to the days of witty one-liners and rapid-fire shtick, making him a good , noncontroversial hire."
