Description:

 

'Twas the Night Before New Year's Eve and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. That's because there's nothing to do... so come to one of the best comedy shows of the year at the Hollywood Improv! 
 
This show has sold out the last two years and has had celebrity pop ins both times... 
 
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.

Matt Knudsen:

Matt Knudsen (Kah-nood-son) was born in Hawaii, raised in the Mid-west and traveled around the world as a merchant marine. After eventually putting down his sea bag, he picked up a microphone and began performing comedy in Los Angeles and New York. As a stand up, he’s appeared on Conan,The Late Late Show and Last Call, as well as several festivals, including the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal; where his appearance garnered a “Best of the Fest,” nod. You can see Matt share the big screen with Sean Penn in Warner Brothers feature Gangster Squad or you may recognize him from his work in Go On, Big Love or Men of a Certain Age just to name a few. Matt’s also been a part of several high profile commercial campaigns for Volkswagen, Apple Computers and GE; which have aired during the Superbowl and The Olympics. His albums American, and The Comedy Stylings of Matt Knudsen are "A highly enjoyable, sure footed journey of fantastic fun," (The Huffington Post) and “Mixes droll observation with dry, almost hypnotic delivery,” (The Onion A.V. Club)
