As a member of the sketch troupe the Imponderables, Eric was named by Variety Magazine as one of their top 10 comics to watch. His troupe appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival (Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal Gala Series on CBC), two Canadian Comedy Award Specials on the Comedy Network, and in the CBC special: Sketch with Kevin McDonald from the Kids in the Hall. They’ve played to sold-out houses in Toronto (Rivoli, Second City, Massey Hall), New York (UCB, PIT) L.A. (ACME, UCB), and Chicago (IO Theatre).
After writing and starring in an Imponderables’ pilot for MTV in the US, Eric began writing, producing and starring in the IPF funded, multiple award winning original series, Bill and Son’s Towing. From there, he’s gone on to write for the Ron James Show (CBC), Still Standing (CBC), Kim’s Convenience (CBC), Gaming Show in My Parent’s Garage (Disney/Family), Odd Squad (PBS, TVO), and two seasons of the Just For Laughs/CW Network Talk Show in an Elevator starring Nick Thune and Pete Holmes.
After turning his attention to directing, Eric has gone behind the lens to work on several episodes of the CMT sketch show Almost Genius, the multiple CCA Nominated Gaming Show in My Parent’s Garage for Family/Disney Channel/Netflix and his own CBC original comedy series he co-created with Pat Thornton called, My Kitchen Can Be Anything.
