New to Gigmasters Eric Lyden is a very sarcastic... but he's also very charming so he can get away with it. And oh yeah... he's also very clean, and VERY VERY FUNNY!!!.

Saying precisely what we're thinking but afraid to utter ourselves… Whether we're talking about our relationships, our jobs, or anything in between Eric uses his love of words, razor sharp wit, and brevity to paint descriptively stark and hilarious images that not only make us laugh… but make us a fan! He also makes anyone who sees him appreciate the time and thought that's evident in his work.

“I just think the people who watch me should know that even though I usually start work at night… I've been putting in a full day just like they have” Eric recently said in an interview with CBS. “Fact is... I like people who work and I like making them laugh. They deserve it”

And because of his love for writing Eric can tailor his act to 'Your' show by writing specific material for 'Your' audience. By personalizing his set for you and your event... no matter the audience Eric shows he really is 'One of us'.

In addition to pristine material and hilarious facial expressions... Eric is one of the best impressionists working today. Stallone, Ray Liotta, Sean Connery, Forrest Gump, and Arnold Schwarzenegger are just a few in Eric's arsenal of impressions which are so accurate that Arnold Schwarzenegger's own publicist, who caught Eric's 'Arnold' during a recent show, remarked 'I work with Arnold and I couldn't tell the difference!'

In 19 years as a professional working comedian and host Eric has performed in venues from New York City to Los Angeles. He is also the top rated comedian for Royal Caribbean International. (He was chosen to perform along with Rihanna and Taylor Swift on the inaugural cruises for both the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas!) More recently Eric was chosen to host the prestigious New York Festival's International Advertising Awards.

Eric made his national television debut on 'Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen'. And most recently performed on 'Gotham Comedy Live' in NYC. He's has opened for Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Dave Mathews, and more… Eric has also performed to stellar reviews for Justin Bieber and Jim Craig of the 1980 Gold Medal Winning USA Hockey Team (Jim Craig was so impressed he volunteered his own letter of recommendation which is available)

So book Eric and he'll not only make you laugh and laugh hard... but he'll make you look good for booking him too!!

Eric made my fathers 70th birthday party an absolute success... Very funny and was able to adjust to the crowd without missing a beat. He made it a priority to learn about the guest of honor and was able to seamlessly incorporate all of his learnings into the act. At no time was I concerned as to whether or not he'd be a hit... I could tell immediately from our multiple conversations leading up to the event that he had a talent which clearly puts him at the top of the pack. If you're looking for a stress free process and LOTS of laughs - I would highly, highly recommend using Eric..

Eric was hired to perform at a party, but the show was delayed. He was very accommodating and his demeanor showed no hint of the excessive delay. Routine was well prepared including material about the guest of honor as well as impromptu material. The show was hilarious, classy and tasteful; exactly what I requested. Many of our guests reached out to us days after the event to rave about Eric as the highlight. We were very pleased with Eric in every way: flexibility, professionalism, appearance, friendliness, punctuality & humor. It was such a pleasure to deal with Eric and I highly recommend him for parties, fundraisers or any event when you want a great comedian!

Wow! What a fantastic evening we had at our annual fundraising event and I have to tip my hat to Eric for making it such a wonderful and memorable event! Eric was charismatic and charming and oh so funny! As chairperson for this event I continuously scanned the crowd and all I saw was smiles and laughter! The feedback was incredible and the attendees of the evening were very happy with the wit humor that was truly all Eric! We are looking forward to booking Eric again for future events!

Eric Lyden’s Response:

Thank you so much, Ellie!! This review is so nice of you. And I'm sure it will help me with future bookings. And that means I'll think of you with every one!! And I'm glad you liked my show because I had a great time too. And to make it back home made it all the better. Please keep me in mind for next year as well as any other events that come up. Whether it's a birthday party, hosting event, etc.. And in the meantime keep taking care of yourself and your beautiful spirit!! Cheers! Eric
