Twisted. That's one word to describe this comedian's act.
Bred for sarcasm, Eric Campbell hits the stage and blends absurdity and cynicism with a hint of childishness. He lets you have it. A metropolitan vagrant, he wins over the audience with his playful self-deprecation. Eric performs seemingly careening towards chaos, using an uncanny ability to flaunt anger with a wink to it. With a relentless questioning of authority, Eric ambushes the pseudo-aristocratic, while establishing a ”comfortable shorthand” with the crowd. His material spans from leprechauns to vegetarians to pop culture. Never one to take himself too seriously, the Irishman delivers a trademark incisive wit with tongue-in-cheek bravado. He’s the been-there-done-that brat with charm.
Eric has quickly become a stand-up act to pay attention to, working with names such as Doug Stanhope, Dennis Regan, Ralphie May, Rich Vos, Orny Adams, Joe Matarese, Dave Chappelle, Pablo Francisco, Drew Hastings, Todd Yohn, Greg Warren, Tammy Pescatelli, Mark Sweeney, and Dave Attell.
