  • Erik Griffin

    Erik Griffin

    Fans of the hit Comedy Central series “Workaholics” instantly recognize Erik Griffin as 

    the show?s iconic series regular Montez. Erik also tours the country headlining popular 

    comedy clubs and colleges every weekend. His debut comedy album, Technical Foul: 

    Volume One, will be released this March. His Comedy Central Presents Half-Hour 

    Stand-Up Special will premiere this year. Erik is a first generation American-born 

    comedian/actor who made the decision in 2003 to quit his job and plunge headlong into 

    making comedy his full-time occupation.

     

    Erik 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;” He can also 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.

     

    Mostly recently, Erik was seen on “Surviving the Holidays” with Lewis Black on the 

    History Channel, he was featured in the Tribeca Film

    Festival Documentary “Just Like Us,” and will be touring the world promoting the movie. 

    Erik was also a guest star on the hit TNT show “Franklin & Bash.”

    With his multicultural background, a Central American-Caribbean mother, a father of 

    European decent, Erik blends well into the North American landscape particularly in this 

    era of cultural diversity. With his routine full of hilarious observations about life, love and 

    selfevaluation, he brings together all ages and ethnic backgrounds, which makes for an 

    uproariously good time.
