| “I’m the white Eminem.”
Don’t let those glasses fool you. Eric Schwartz is more than meets the four eyes.
He goes from wimp to pimp – “Oh, the ladies bring me money… I’m very good with their taxes;” from frat beer drinker to head cheerleader – “I’m the pep daddy;” and mixes hip-hop with Hebrew – “’Oy’ is just ‘Yo’ backwards.”
With an endless line-up of original characters, Schwartz is a nice Jewish boy who, among other things, can rap with authentic hip-hop flava.
At least that’s what happens when his most prominent character, Smooth-E busts out on the mic. Smooth-E is the ultimate homeboy – he lives at home with his parents.
Using his host of characters, Schwartz is creating a name for himself on TV, radio, clubs and the college market.
“Ripe for a career not unlike ‘Weird Al’ or Adam Sandler…Eric Schwartz is a real blockbuster talent waiting to be marketed at the very highest of levels for his inter-generational, cross-cultural appeal. Very physical and very daring, this guy is phenomenal…he's going to be huge.” (Beverly Hills Outlook)
Schwartz is already gaining popularity on national TV and radio, as his voice is heard as the narrator of the syndicated TV series, “Animal Atlas,” which makes its national debut in the fall of 2004.
Schwartz has appeared on BET’s “Comic View,” “The Sharon Osbourne Show” (The WB), “The John Henson Project” (Spike TV), “Live in Hollywood” (UPN), “Guy Torry’s Phat Comedy Tuesdays DVD,” “Latino Laugh Festival” (Si TV), and “Loco Comedy Jam” (Mun2) and tears the roof off top comedy clubs, including The Improv, Laugh Factory, Caroline’s, Catch a Rising Star, Comedy Store and many more.
Radio stations are taking sips of Smooth-E, as his comedy bits and songs are broadcast on top-market stations and across the country on All Comedy Radio, XM Satellite Radio and Premiere Radio Networks. Felli Fel, one of the nation’s most respected hip-hop DJs, spins Smooth-E’s tracks regularly on his night show on Los Angeles’ Power106 and uses them on his “Heavy Hitters” mixtape series.
Using his many voices and personas, he writes, produces and performs syndicated comedy pieces for hundreds of stations. His music has also been featured on TV morning shows from WPIX in New York to Fox 11’s “Good Day L.A.”
Whether Smooth-E is droppin’ lyrics on the radio or performing at live events, Schwartz’s energetic comedy is rocking the nation. The WB television network tapped Eric to host its annual national college tour with recording artists Fat Joe, Nappy Roots, Social Burn and The Format.
Straight out of the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, Schwartz developed the "skills to pay the bills" as an international DJ. He's the MC and mixmaster at high-profile film and television studio parties, special events and clubs. Host of "Spring Break" in Jamaica with MTV for over 50,000 college students, Schwartz has “blessed the ones and twos” with Destiny’s Child, Wyclef Jean, Jay-Z, Shaggy, Boyz II Men and others. His client list includes some of the biggest names in Hollywood, from A-list actors to heads of studios. Smooth-E even manages to kick some rhymes for the stars.
