One of Gigmasters highest rated comedians Eric Lyden was a comedian long before he was an actual comedian. Listening to his parent's Carlin and Cosby comedy albums as a child... Eric wasn't sure what he laughing at or even why he was laughing. But the one thing Eric did know was that he wanted to make people laugh too. And he did! From doing impressions in elementary school... to taking home 'Class Clown' honors as a senior in high school. And he's been doing professionally for over 20 years!

Eric began his own professional comedy career with an arsenal impressions including Stallone, Connery, Schwarzenegger, Liotta, McConaughey, and a lot more that are so accurate that Arnold Schwarzenegger's very own publicist caught Eric's 'Arnold' during a recent show and remarked 'I work with Arnold every day and I couldn't even tell the difference!'

As Eric continued to evolve as a comedian he found his own passion for language, honesty, and thought in his material. And drawing from his 'Coach class' upbringing... and his 'Uselessness' at real jobs along with Eric gives every audience he stares down someone they laugh with, relate to, and consider 'One of their own' by getting us laugh at the things in life that hard to laugh about.

In fact... even though comedy was always innately a passion it took 9/11 for Eric to understand the true value in his own work. In an article in The Daily Voice to promote a recent fundraiser Lyden, a father of three, said “It was the first time I went an extended period of time without trying to say something funny. And it was the first time I needed to laugh. So once I understood the real value of my own work I started taking my job a lot more seriously”

In terms of credits thus far Eric Lyden made his crushing and show closing national television debut on 'Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen'. Which was followed by 'KOing' a NYC crowd on 'Gotham Comedy Live'.

In addition to comedy Eric has made a name for himself a host as well as was chosen to host the prestigious New York Festival's International Advertising Awards.
Other career highlights to date include opening on several occasions for the late and beyond great Joan River, sharing the stage with Dave Mathews, and unknowingly performing for and laying out the Gold Medal winning goalie Jim Craig of the 1980 USA Hockey Team (Jim Craig was so impressed he volunteered his own letter of recommendation which is available)

Hiring Eric Lyden yourself will not only make you and everyone at your special event regardless of the occasion laugh and laugh hard... but you'll look good too just for booking him. Because, as Eric's reviews prove, by researching every event, venue, or guest of honor and writing new and specific material to fit the occasion Eric personalizes each show to instantly become 'One of our own' no matter the audience or the event.

Eric did a beautiful job at our event!! He not only was hysterical but he also was very interactive and conversational with the guests at the show. They loved him and I strongly recommend him for social events as well as corporate events!! Take a moment away from the seriousness of life and laugh hysterically with Eric!! Thank you for making my event a success!

Eric Lyden was an absolute hit! There was a small miscommunication about the usage of a sound system but Eric adjusted. He actually picked up the sound system just before showtime. He really went the extra mile! He is absolutely funny and takes his job very seriously.
