Just back from his appearance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was hand selected to perform for Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Network, Erik Rivera keeps making his mark on the stand up comedy scene. Erik is no stranger to TV or comedy milestones – since his Late Night debut on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, a recognition that has been a springboard to many comedy greats, Rivera has become a familiar face on television. He was then chosen as one of the Top 100 comedians to be invited to perform in the re-launch of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. In 2015 Erik got to cross off another comedy milestone when he recorded his debut 1 Hour Comedy Special, Im No Expert which aired on Fuse NuVO TV. Last year Rivera was cast to star alongside Brandon T Jackson (Tropic Thunder) and DeRay Davis (Netflix How To Act Black) in Oxygen’s docu-series Living With Funny – a look at life off stage for the touring comedians. Recently he co-starred in CBS’s most talked about episode of Superior Donuts, where they tackled the current state of immigration in the United States! 2019 is starting off with a bang as Erik will be featured in HBO/HBO Latino’s “Entre Nos” stand up comedy show, highlighting the nation’s funniest Latino comedians.
