George Wendt is known to fans around the globe as the lovable Norm Peterson in all 275 episodes of Cheers, running from 1982 until 1993.
In the early 1990s, Wendt made cameo appearances on several episodes of SNL as Bob Swerski, one of the Chicago Bears Superfans (along with castmembers Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Robert Smigel, and one-time host, Joe Mantegna). Having grown up as a lifelong fan of his hometown Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bears, Wendt’s Bob Swerski character is said to be a ‘spot-on characterization of Chicago’s south-side citizens. Wendt is also the uncle of former SNL writer and cast member Jason Sudeikis.
Wendt has also appeared as himself on Seinfeld, and had guest roles in many television shows and movies, including the Simpsons, Family guy, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
George Wendt will be appearing at Niagara Falls Comic Con both days.
