Erik Rivera’s “boy next door” good looks and unique perspective, makes him one of New York’s fastest rising young comedians. His quick wit along with his commanding stage presence, charisma and infectious smile all makes him a favorite act at comedy clubs throughout New York City. Erik recently shot Funny People After Dark for MTv Networks. Erik has appeared on both the small and big screen in SiTv’s Urban Jungle 2, NBC’s My Name is Earl and in the upcoming independent feature film My Brother with Vanessa L. Williams. He is also slated to appear in the feature film Stand Up by award winning director Michael Rainin later this year. Currently Rivera has a sitcom in development with Montel Williams’ production company. Originally from the suburbs of New York, his humor takes you on a journey of growing up in a Latino family in a very WASPY neighborhood. His over-the-top descriptions and sarcastic twists leave you wanting more. Erik’s squeaky-clean material and unique delivery make him a pearl in the sea of ordinary comedy. Erik is single and currently still submersed in the Suburbs that he makes fun of, living in the insanity he affectionately calls home.
