Erik Knowles was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps, getting repeatedly demoted for “clowning around.” After yet another incident, his Sergeant, intent on teaching Erik a lesson he clearly wasn’t learning through standard reprimands, signed him up for the Squadron Christmas Party Talent Show. “You like to make people laugh? Well here’s your chance!” With just a week to prepare, Erik wrote six daring minutes of material that roasted his entire chain of command, earning him his first comedic victory and the respect of his unit.
Erik has come a long way since that first talent show, and is only getting better. After coming in as a runner-up in San Diego’s Funniest Person Contest 2014, he stayed true to his roots, entertaining the troops in the Middle East with Armed Forces Entertainment in 2015, and continues to work with other military and veteran organizations. His COMBAT 2 COMEDY series employs the healing power of laughter, and he is a certified Laughter Therapy Coach with the Air Force Wounded Warriors (AFW2).
As a contestant at 2016’s World Series of Comedy, Erik took first place in every round, ultimately winning the title. He is consistently the most requested comedian among U.S. Troops, receiving many prestigious accolades, including the Veterans Choice Award for Best Comedian in 2016 and the Veteran Achievement Award at The San Diego Comedy Festival in 2015. Erik is a dynamic, powerful, and unforgettable headliner at comedy clubs throughout the nation, and has been featured on FOX’s “Laughs,” and HULU’s “Man Up Stand-Up.”
