Erik Griffin will be taping his one hour special for SHOWTIME!

Be a part of this SPECIAL event.

A towering force of comedy, Erik Griffin is most recognizable as the mustachioed Montez Walker on the hit Comedy Central series WORKAHOLICS, which recently wrapped its seventh and final season.

Griffin will next star as a series regular in Showtime's dark-comedy series I'M DYING UP HERE that will premiere on June 4th. Based on the book by former L.A. 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, under executive producer Jim Carrey. Griffin's first hour-long comedy special, THE UGLY TRUTH, will also premiere on Showtime this July.

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.

Distinguished as 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.

Griffin started his career in comedy after making the decision in 2003 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, nationally syndicated COMICS UNLEASHED and performing on the ALMA Award-nominated PAYASO COMEDY SLAM on Showtime and Comedy Central networks

Griffin resides in Los Angeles.
