Eric Neumann
Eric Neumann was a class clown throughout school. When he tried the same clownish behavior in college, his classmates were all like "Why are you calling out in class?! Raise your hand!". He knew he needed an outlet to tell his jokes immediately. Enter Comic Strip Live. Comic Strip Live is the first stage that he had ever performed on when he was just shy of 21 years old. Now just a few years later, he is a regular performer at Comic Strip, New York Comedy Club, Standup New York, Broadway Comedy Club and Greenwich Comedy Club, as well as New York's alternative rooms. Eric has performed at various festivals including Laughing Skull Festival, Laughing Devil Festival and Hoboken Comedy Festival, and has been featured on two Montreal Just For Laughs showcases. His audio clips have been featured on Rooftop Comedy's "Best Of" collection and have aired on Sirius XM Radio, Spotify and Audible, though his favorite rooms to perform in are nursing homes. But still with all of this stage time, he has yet to have a year that financially tops his Bar Mitzvah year.
