Dick Hardwick

Corporate Comedian/Emcee

One of the most sought-after corporate and special event comedians in the country, Dick Hardwick has recently returned from his 2nd Around the World Tour with Lee Greenwood & the New England Patriot Cheerleaders for the United States Air Force Reserve. He has also been making his mark on the public by appearing in concert with the legendary Johnny Mathis and Reba McEntire.

His quick wit and "off-the-wall sense of humor" has served him well as a guest on Jeff Foxworthy's syndicated radio show and numerous television appearances. Hardwick's strong audience reaction is a testament to his ability to know what works each and every time he hits the stage...and make you - the buyer - the hero!

The Convention and Visitors Bureau for both Las Vegas and Reno have used Dick multiple times as their traveling host for sales promotion trips. Clients as varied as the PROMOTIONAL PRODUCTS ASSN., STATE FARM, MERCK, AT&T, COKE, KFC, GILLETTE, BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE and The Republican National Committee all celebrate Dick's ability to entertain with big laughs while never using any offensive language or four-letter words.

He has repeat appearances at Greg Norman's Shark Shoot Out, Michael Bolton’s Charity Classic and Jeff Foxworthy’s Duke Children’s Hospital Classic.

Dick recently hosted the 80th Birthday party for General Chuck Yeager and the 75th Birthday for Michael Pulitzer.
