About playwright/performer Pat Hazell:

Showtime declared Pat Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 25 years of experience as a writer, performer and producer have made him the go-to guy for new American theater. Pat Hazell is one of the original writers for NBC’s Seinfeld, a Tonight Show veteran, a critically acclaimed playwright and a contributing commentator to National Public Radio. He is recognized for his genuinely funny Americana humor and his salute to pop culture.

As a playwright, Hazell’s first endeavor was Bunk Bed Brothers, which he co-wrote with Matt Goldman. The play was critically acclaimed and later optioned by Columbia Pictures with screenwriting chores going to Hazell and Goldman. Bunk Bed Brothers then gained the attention from the television industry and was filmed as the sit-com, American Pie, for NBC Studios.

Hazell’s latest work, The Wonder Bread Years, is a celebration of the baby boomer generation recalling the youth filled joys of Clackers, Lawn Jarts and riding in the way back of the country squire wagon. This hilarious one-man show and tell aired on PBS, where they referred to Hazell as “America’s foremost pop culture anthropologist.” Currently, the live theatrical tour of _The Wonder Bread Years _is enjoying rave reviews across the US.

His television writing credits include Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, My Life In 3D, Showtime’s Aspen Comedy Special, and Grounded For Life.

As the President of Sweetwood Productions, Hazell is responsible for the national tours of five original productions: Bunk Bed Brothers, The Passing Zone, Backstage Pass_, J_ohn Mueller’s Winter Dance Party, and The Wonder Bread Years. However, Hazell’s greatest accomplishment is being the father of two of the brightest shining stars in the universe, Tucker and Keaton.
