A towering force of comedy, Erik Griffin is most recognizable as the mustachioed “Montez Walker” on Comedy Central’s hit series Workaholics.
Griffin is currently starring as a regular in Showtime’s dark-comedy series I’m Dying Up Here. Based on the book by former Los Angeles Times writer William Knoedelseder, the fictionalized series is set in the celebrated, yet infamous, L.A. stand-up comedy scene of the ’70s, and co-stars Melissa Leo, Al Madrigal and Ari Graynor, all under executive producer Jim Carrey.
Previous television credits include a recurring role on the Starz! comedy Blunt Talk with Patrick Stewart, Netflix’s One Day at a Time, FX’s You’re the Worst, Fox’s Bob’s Burgers, Arrested Development and Nickelodeon’s Harvey Breaks.
On the big screen, Griffin can be seen in Jake Szymanski’s Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates and Kerem Sanga’s First Girl I Loved.
Griffin started his entertainment career in 2003 after making the decision to quit his job and pursue comedy full-time. He first gained national exposure in Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham, NBC’s Last Comic Driving, Showtime’s Comics Without Borders, the nationally syndicated Comics Unleashed and performances on Showtime and Comedy Central networks’ ALMA Award-nominated, Payaso Comedy Slam. Griffin’s first hour-long comedy special, The Ugly Truth, also premiered on Showtime last July.
A nationally touring comedian who headlines comedy clubs and colleges nearly every weekend, Griffin’s comedy is immortalized on his debut comedy album, Technical Foul: Volume One, and his Comedy Central Presents half-hour stand-up special.
