Eric Schwartz aka Smooth-E is more than meets the four eyes. He seamlessly weaves through a countless lineup of original characters and musical pieces, making him a favorite at clubs, colleges, on television and the web.
One of the most-downloaded comedians, this rare talent can’t be hidden, and Schwartz‘s popularity is quickly rising. “E! News Daily” host Ryan Seacrest says Schwartz is “rocking the web” with “video that’s got everyone Googling.”

A trend setter in the digital comedy age, Smooth-E writes the groundbreaking material, makes the beats and creates high production-value videos.
