At the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was hand selected to perform for Kevin Hart's Laugh OutLoud Network, Erik Rivera keeps making his mark on the stand-up comedy scene.
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, "I'm No Expert" which is available on iTunes & Amazon. Last year Rivera was cast to star alongside Brandon T Jackson and DeRay Davis 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!
Erik is featured in HBO/HBO Latino’s “Entre Nos” stand up comedy showcase, highlighting the nation’s funniest Latino comedians!
