Erik Griffin, a first generation American-born comedian/actor, is hard-working, ambitious, talented, and most importantly funny (according to his mother.) Erik made the decision in 2003 to quit his job and plunge headlong into making comedy his full-time occupation. This challenge paid off, as Erik now plays Montez Walker, a recurring character on the new Comedy Central series Workaholics.

Erik first gained national exposure performing in the ALMA nominated Payaso Comedy Slam, seen on Showtime and Comedy Central. He’s also been seen on _Live at Gotham _ on Comedy Central,_ Last Comic Driving_ on NBC, Comics Without Borders on Showtime and the nationally syndicated Comics Unleashed. He can be seen in several national commercials, including the Emmy-winning Bud Light commercial “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. 

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 self-evaluation, he brings together all ages and ethnic backgrounds, which makes for an uproariously good time.
