Description:
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.

Gene Pompa:

 Comedian and writer, Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Que Locos on Galavision, Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival," and "In Living Color" on FOX, and Si TV!. Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May, 2009.

Gene has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials, "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV, both airing regularly in rotation.

Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood, Irvine, Brea and Ontario and across the country, doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.

Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life, except for a few years during the 70's, when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles, Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.
