Moontower Paramount Theatre Headliner
Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters) and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies) perform a completely improvised show.
Ben Schwartz is an Emmy® Award winning writer, actor and comedian.
Schwartz can be seen alongside Thomas Middleditch in their Netflix specials, MIDDLEDITCH & SCHWARTZ. The specials are based on their completely improvised two person show that they took on tour through early 2020. During this tour, the two played Carnegie Hall, Chicago Theatre and sold out theaters all across the country.
Schwartz can be seen starring in Netflix’s SPACE FORCE, the comedy series that follows the people tasked with creating Space Force, a new branch of the U.S. military.

He also stars in the Disney+ original film FLORA AND ULYSSES and lends his voice to the Paramount Animation and WWE-produced animated film, RUMBLE starring Will Arnett, Terry Crews and Tony Danza set to release in 2021.
Most recently, Schwartz voiced the title character in Jeff Fowler’s highly successful live action/animation hybrid film SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, based on the classic Sega video game. Paramount released the film on February 14, 2020 and it has since become the highest domestic grossing video game adaptation of all-time with $146 million and a worldwide gross of $306.7 million.
Thomas Middleditch can currently be seen starring as the lead character in Mike Judge’s critically acclaimed HBO series, SILICON VALLEY. Thomas’ performance as the shy entrepreneur “Richard Hendricks” garnered him a 2016 Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” along with three Critics’ Choice nominations for “Best Actor in a Comedy Series.” The show has received four Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for “Outstanding Comedy Series.”
On the big screen, Thomas recently joined the casts of GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS opposite Sally Hawkins and Kyle Chandler, and REPLICAS opposite Keanu Reeves.
