Short Bio

Erik Terrell is a big kid with a big heart. Supporting his Fantasy Football addiction and his loving wife, Erik headlines Comedy venues along the East Coast and works regularly at various New York and Los Angeles Comedy Clubs including Caroline’s, Gotham, the Laugh Factory, and the Stand to name a few. Erik’s debut Stand-Up Comedy Special is on Amazon, Apple TV, Microsoft, and all major cable platforms including DirecTV and Dish. Feel free to resume this bio later if you would like to go check it out now.

Erik was President of the “Hampton Players” drama organization in college. After giving Stand-Up a shot on summer vacation after his sophomore year at Hampton University in 2011, Erik quickly adopted a new identity as not only actor, but Stand-Up Comedian. In college, Erik hosted and performed on most of Hampton University’s Homecoming and Spring Fest Comedy shows. After graduating from Hampton in 2013, he returned home to Philadelphia where he was soon picked up by Helium Comedy Club. He soon began headlining local shows and bussing himself back and forth to NYC to “stomp with the big dogs.”

Becoming a finalist in Caroline’s Comedy Madness at Caroline’s on Broadway was instrumental in fueling a series of fortune for Erik’s Stand-Up career in 2019. Months later, Erik was named one of Variety’s “Comics to Watch” at the New York Comedy Festival. Erik gave an opening performance for NBC’s National Dog Show in Philadelphia, and he produced and headlined his own show, “Officially Overseas”, at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. He’s been featured at over fifteen mainstream Comedy Festivals including the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival, Burbank Comedy Festival, Oak City Comedy Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival and the North Carolina Comedy Festival. He filmed for Comedy Time TV in LA, and Caroline’s on Broadway featured Erik on “Caroline’s Presents”, showcasing him as one of New York’s best breakout comics.
