Comedian Nick Swardson adds second Treasure Island show

"Due to popular demand," he'll now be performing Dec. 27 and Dec. 28.

Minnesota is now in for a double-dose of homegrown comedian Nick Swardson.

The Minneapolis-born comic, also known for his appearances on "Reno 911!" and in several Adam Sandler movies, has added a second date to his upcoming performance at Treasure Island Resort & Casino.

In a news release, the casino says the second date is "due to popular demand" — so now he'll be performing on both Friday, Dec. 27 and Saturday, Dec. 28.

Tickets for both nights are available through Ticketmaster for $39, $69 and $79. You can also find them through Treasure Island's website. 

If you're only heard of Swardson but aren't familiar with his comic style, here's a couple of samples courtesy of YouTube (WARNING: Both feature plenty of adult language, so viewer discretion is advised):

Treasure Island Casino is located southeast of the Twin Cities in Welch. 

The venue also recently announced that the Beach Boys would be playing there this November.
