the show?s iconic series regular Montez. Erik also tours the country headlining popular
comedy clubs and colleges every weekend. His debut comedy album, Technical Foul:
Volume One, will be released this March. His Comedy Central Presents Half-Hour
Stand-Up Special will premiere this year. Erik is a first generation American-born

making comedy his full-time occupation.

Slam” seen on Showtime and Comedy Central networks, “Live at Gotham” on Comedy
Central, “Last Comic Driving” on NBC, “Comics Without Borders” on Showtime, nationally

Erik was also a guest star on the hit TNT show “Franklin & Bash.”
With his multicultural background, a Central American-Caribbean mother, a father of
European decent, Erik blends well into the North American landscape particularly in this
era of cultural diversity. With his routine full of hilarious observations about life, love and
selfevaluation, he brings together all ages and ethnic backgrounds, which makes for an
uproariously good time.
Why does Shaun Latham crack us up? Because he lays everything out on the table. Shaun isn’t afraid to go off the cuff and go into any and all members of the crowd and even takes a few jabs at himself! Don’t be offended by his “lazy eye” jokes, because he sure isn’t.
Shaun is what we like to call an empowering comic. He holds nothing back and doesn’t let any limitations get in his way. He’s also LMFAO hilarious, with great riffs on dating, partying, sports and video games, and plenty of other everyday life scenarios (basically all the stuff guys deem important).
With his first big screen appearance in an indy film “Im Not like that no more” along side Paul Rodriguez and Felipe Esparza in 2009, Shaun showed us there is more to his abilities than meets the eye.
is a huge fan of Shaun’s
talents and gave him the “Fluffy
” stamp of approval by bringing him on the road for 2 national tours.(Fluffyshop, Stand up Revolution) Where during the same time he made his Network television premiere on Season 1 of Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Revolution", and a recent appearance on season 3 which is slated to air just before summer 2014!
2013 was a good year for Shaun, as he was a featured headliner on NUVOtv’s “Stand up and Deliver” season 2, as well as an invited guest to the first ever Oslo (Norway) Comedy Festival in October!
This comedian always brings new material that’ll have you ROLLING. Shaun is definitely a talent worth keeping an eye on and will make for some great water cooler talk the morning after you see experience his show!
