About the artist
At age 14, they reluctantly let him spend all his Bar MItzvah money on DJ gear. He began spinning at parties all over, which made him look pretty cool to his peers until they went outside and saw Eric's parents sleeping in the car.
But little did Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz know, they were fueling a bright future.
Today, Eric Schwartz aka Smooth-E electrifies audiences worldwide with his blend of stand-up, music and video. Behind his geeky facade lies a multi-dimensional showman, actor, producer, director and writer whose creations have been seen on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, E!, BET, The CW, TMZ, G4 and more. Audiences worldwide follow Smooth-E's mantra to "Surrender to the Blender."
In fall of 2011, Eric debuts as the host of the TV series, "On The Spot," airing nationally in syndication on CW, ABC, CBS and NBC stations. Each week, he takes to the streets to ask trivia questions people should probably know the answers to...but do they?
One of the internet's hottest stars, “E! News Daily” host Ryan Seacrest says he is “rocking the web” with “video that’s got everyone Googling.” Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz tapped Eric to create a series of comedy promos for his summer tour entitled "Grati-Tube."
And Eric's parents still come to his shows.
