          Comedian and “I’M DYING UP HERE” star Erik Griffin (Workaholics, Blunt Talk)  makes his hour-long debut in the new comedy special “ERIK GRIFFIN: THE UGLY TRUTH.” Griffin’s hilarious special is the third standalone comedy event from the stars of the network’s newest drama series I’M DYING UP HERE, which airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.  

          Griffin cut his teeth on the stages of comedy clubs throughout the U.S. and in his first hour-long special, gives viewers a taste of what he does best – make crowds of people laugh uncontrollably. With a sharp wit and even sharper tongue, Griffin deconstructs everything from modern romance and profile pictures to calorie counting and Fatburger in this raucous hour of standup from one of today’s brightest comedic minds.

 

          Griffin is most instantly recognizable to fans from his role on Workaholics. He was also recently seen in the film Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates. Griffin has appeared on Blunt Talk, Arrested Development, Franklin & Bash and World’s Funniest Fails, and has recorded voiceover for Harvey Breaks. He tours the country headlining popular comedy clubs and colleges every weekend. Griffin also recently released his debut comedy album, Technical Foul: Volume One, as well as his Comedy Central Presents Half-Hour Stand-Up Special.
