Showtime declared Pat Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 25 years of experience

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 custom corporate entertainment. 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.

Pat's ability to integrate humor into a business meeting has lead to hosting hundreds of award shows for clients such as: Verizon, Canada Life, MSN, GTE, Toshiba, Lucent Technologies, Merry Maids, Brinker International, Paramount Home Video, Northwestern Golf, Marriott, Ernst & Young, Precor, Ford Motor Company, and many more.

As a playwright, Pat'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.

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. Hazell's latest work, The Wonder Bread Years, a hilarious one-man show & tell aired on PBS, where they referred to him as "America's foremost pop culture anthropologist." The live theatrical tour is currently enjoying rave reviews across the US.

As the President of Sweetwood Productions, Pat Hazell is in the business of being a funny businessman. However, Pat's greatest accomplishment is being the father of two of the brightest shining stars in the universe.

Pat Hazell's The Wonder Bread Years is a hilarious one-man show-and-tell reminding us that there is still a kid inside each of us, and a sense of wonder that is waiting to be unlocked. A salute to pure escapism and the Baby Boomer Generation, The Wonder Bread Years is akin to opening a time capsule packed with the most common youth-filled joys of childhood, such as: Hula Hoop contests, lawn darts, Kool-Aid, Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots, Big Wheels, Eskimo Pies, Clackers, Toughskin Jeans and riding in the way back of the Country Squire wagon- reminding us all that we share more in common than we have differences. Recognizing the foundation of common interest in both professional and personal situations is key to developing successful relationships in the work environment and at home.

The Wonder Bread Years, described as "pure un-pasteurized nostalgia" by The LA Times, aired on PBS as a one-hour special, where Hazell was referred to as "America's foremost Pop Culture anthropologist." This fast-paced production, hailed as "infectiously charming" by LA Weekly, gracefully walks the line between stand up and theater and is making its way across the country to rave reviews.  The Wonder Bread Years not only restores a much-needed sense of wonder, it leaves audiences more connected to their co-workers and inspired to seek the foundation of common interest in the next prospective client.
