Since bursting onto the NYC comedy scene in 2004, Erik Rivera’s name has become synonymous with comedy. With quick wit, commanding stage presence, charisma and an infectious smile, Rivera has become a favorite act at comedy clubs, events and colleges throughout the country. A regular at NYC and LA comedy clubs such as The Comedy Cellar, Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy & Magic Club, Erik’s star is quickly rising! Last year he was honored to make his Late Night debut on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, a recognition that has been a springboard to many comedy greats.
With the name “Vladimir,” few people expect a Dominican from The Bronx to take the stage. He is an NBC Standup for Diversity Finalist and has been featured on “Gotham Comedy Live” on AXS.TV, Standup 360, and NUVO TV’s “Standup and Deliver”. Vladimir tours nationally and is a regular in the New York scene performing at the Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, HA Comedy Club and the Comic Strip Live. He is also a Diversity Scholarship Winner at The People’s Improv Theater and a graduate of Wesleyan University. His comedic style is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City and is described as an elegant combination of urban grit and intellect.

Thai Rivera will make you uncomfortable in the best way possible. His politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm. He is a favorite and regular at clubs such as the Hollywood Improv and World Famous Laugh Factory. He has performed with some of the biggest names in the world of stand up, such as Russell Peters, Gabriel Iglesias and Jo Koy. He has also been featured on Comedy Central, Nuvo TV and the Logo Network. His disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease and there is no doubt that by the end of his set he will be one of your new favorites. Thai’s comedy has not only taken him across this country, but as far away as Australia and Thule Greenland where he performed for our troops.
