Improv Arlington presents Erik Griffin
Erik Griffin, a first-generation American-born comedian/actor, is hard working, ambitious, talented, and most importantly “funny” according to his mother. Griffin made the decision in 2003 to quit his job and plunge headlong into making comedy his full-time occupation. This challenge paid off, Griffin will next be seen as a recurring character on the new Comedy Central series The Workaholics as “Montez Walker."
Griffin first gained national exposure performing in the ALMA nominated Payaso Comedy Slam seen on Showtime and Comedy Central networks, Live at Gotham on Comedy Central, Last Comic Driving on NBC, Comics Without Borders on Showtime, nationally syndicated Comics Unleashed; and he can be seen featured in several national commercials, including the Emmy winning, Budlight Swear Jar. In 2008 at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, he received overwhelming reviews. Erik was featured at the 2008 NACA National Conference, the 2007 East Regional and 2006 NACA West Regional Showcases. He is currently headlining clubs and colleges throughout the United States and Canada.
