Comedian and Minnesotan Nick Swardson was back on his home turf on Wednesday and stopped by the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium.

Mortensen Construction has finished the stadium ahead of schedule, but Swardson is the one who's taking the credit. In the video, he states: "This is exactly how I designed it' and also added, "I really designed this well."

Swardson is a stand-up comedian and actor who's been in such as films as "Grandma's Boy," "Benchwarmers" and "Reno 911." He attended high school at St. Paul Central Senior High.

The first Vikings game is a preseason game on Aug. 28th but there is also a soccer match and concerts lined up before the Vikings actually take the field.
