Eric Hunter

Bio

     ERIC HUNTER has been performing comedy since the age of 6, when he got his very first laugh at a family picnic. His grandmother scolded him for not eating all of his dinner. "You know there are starving children in third world countries who would love to eat that," she said. "Well, here, send it to them," came his reply and upon hearing his cousins’ laughter, he knew comedy was the life for him!
 
     Eric now performs non-stop around the country leaving his mark as a clean, funny, bright, friendly and original performer. He jokes sarcastically about various topics, including his friends and Irish Catholic family, education, sports and relationships. He’s best known for his hilarious, deadpan attempt to impress the women in the audience.

     In cities like New York, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Prestonburg, KY (and every-where in between), Eric has performed with a wide range of comedians, including Louie Anderson at the Comedy Store in L.A., Brian Regan, Ray Romano, Tom Papa, Jake Johannsen, Blake Clark, Kevin Nealon, Bobcat Goldthwaite, Kevin Pollak, Frank Caliendo, Nick DiPaolo, Wendy Liebman, John Witherspoon, Todd Glass, Pam Stone, John Pinette, Dave Coulier, The Amazing Johnathan, Adam Ferarra, Pablo Francisco, Robert Wuhl, Jim Brogan, Bob Zany, Etta May, Tim Wilson, Heath Hyche, Jimmy Walker, John Roy, Michael Winslow, Michael Roof and Dennis Regan. (When he was a kid, he got autographs from Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld.)

     In October, 2006, LA Weekly listed Eric in its "Some Of The Funniest Comedians In America" section. You can see Eric perform on the Comedy Time Network. He has made multiple appearances on the nationally syndicated "Bob and Tom" radio show and on their WGN television show. You can also hear him on internet radio station Slacker.com and on SiriusXM satellite radio.

     In 2008, Eric appeared on Last Comic Standing on NBC and was a semi-finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival. He has performed in a wide variety of venues, such as comedy clubs, colleges, cruise ships, country clubs, casinos and does such a clean act, he has even performed in a church. In fact, he’ll perform anywhere that begins with a "c"; plus, resorts, hotels, bars, restaurants and schools.

     One of Eric's favorite moments was opening for Tom Ryan and the legendary, Brian Regan, on September 22, 2007 at the N. Charleston Performing Arts Center in S. Carolina. He headlined the 2007 "Stand Up Showdown" at the Piccolo Spoleto Arts Festival in Charleston, SC and had audiences laughing at the 2004 New York Underground Comedy Festival, the 2008 Charleston Comedy Festival and the 2009 Detroit International Comedy Festival and The New York Comedy Contest (semi-finalist). He also won Atlanta, Georgia’s "Late Night Laff-Off" comedy competition when he appeared on the WB network affiliate-WATL Channel 36 and won a trip to New York and a performance at the Comedy Cellar. Eric took 3rd place at the Carnival Comedy Challenge, a nationwide comic talent search for Carnival Cruise Lines, at the Miami Improv on September 19, 2007.

     He also does some acting and works at Georgia Public Broadcasting as a sports reporter and as a writer for a comedy/variety TV show. He graduated with a BA degree in Communications and Theatre from the University of Notre Dame. His measurements are not 36-54-36. Enjoy the very funny, smart, yet sometimes confusing "Around the Corner" comedy of Eric Hunter.
