Sweetwood Creative/Pat Hazell
Pat Hazell is Chief Creative Officer of Sweetwood Creative in Austin. Showtime declared Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 30 years of experience as a writer, producer, and director have made him a go-to guy for new American theater. Hazell is one of the original writers for NBC's 'Seinfeld,' a veteran of 'The Tonight Show,' contributor to NPR, and a critically acclaimed playwright. Hazell’s signature work, 'The Wonder Bread Years,' is a fresh and funny salute to Americana. The fast-paced one-man show, starring Hazell, hilariously illustrates our collective consciousness. The production not only restores a much-needed sense of wonder but leaves audiences laughing and savoring the past like never before. 'The Wonder Bread Years' is a comic bullseye for Baby Boomers everywhere, and has been hailed by Jerry Seinfeld as 'Milk-snorting funny!' Premiering in 2019, Hazell’s newest one-man show 'Pat Hazell’s Permanent Record' is a confessional night of humor, heart, and humanity where Hazell opens the vault to all his faults to turn a stroll down Memory Lane into a high-speed chase down Memory Highway. Culture Buzz hails the production as 'A solo performance masterpiece.' Additionally, Hazell offers workshops and master classes for all ages. Photos by Andy Snow & Brent Isen.
