Erik Rivera got his start in comedy, according to his Bio at his official site, in the often tough comedy clubs of New York City. He excelled, despite the challenges he faced, and when New Yorkers think about comedy, the name Erik Rivera comes to their minds. Rivera’s quick wit, charisma, infectious smile, and commanding stage presence has rapidly made this rising comedy star into a fan favorite at colleges, events, and comedy clubs.
Erik Rivera has also become well-known and popular at comedy clubs in L.A., and has become a fixture at clubs like The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Cellar, The Comedy & Magic Club, Comic Strip Live, and Gotham Comedy Club. Also, before Jay Leno retired from hosting the Tonight Show, Rivera had the honor of making his Late Night debut on the show.
Since then, Rivera has become much sought-after as a comedian, and in 2013, the famous Eva Longria and UnbeliEVAble Productions, her production company, even created and sold a half-hour long sitcom starring Erik Rivera. When NBC re-launched their TV series, Last Comic Standing, he was chosen as one of the Top 100 comedians invited to participate in the competition.
Yet another honor followed when NBC and the National Council of La Raza invited him to be the official spokesman and presenter for NCLR and the ALMA Awards. Then, just this year, NUVO TV chose Rivera to be their Hispanic Heritage Month official spokesman. Other cable networks that Rivera has appeared on include TV Guide, AXS TV, Comedy Central and MTV.
In 2010, he was selected by NBC to represent their immensely popular Stand-Up for Diversity College Tour. During the tour, Rivera performed, quite literally, from coast-to-coast, bringing laughter to people all along the way to over 50 universities and colleges.
Comedian Erik Rivera has also shared the stage with well-know and established comedians such as Gabriel Iglesias, Carlos Mencia and Last Comic Standing winner Felipe Esparza. Playing to a sold-out house in Hollywood at The Kodak Theatre, Rivera won the Diamonds in the Rough Award. He is also the only comedian ever to have performed for a record four times at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute at the Warner Theater in Washington, DC .
