This is definitely an R rated show, politically charged, and so ravenously funny that you might expire from laughter. Not for the faint of heart. So please skip this one if you're easily offended. For the rest of you, it will be a show you'll never forget.
"His humor and talent ring loud and clear."- Dr. Demento
"The Most gifted, irreverant, musically brilliant, beloved, warm presence here at kerrville and everywhere else."- Peter Yarrow
"Blending politically savvy comedy with music has always been a slippery slope. Eric Schwartz knows just how to meld funny and funky."- Hustler Magazine, March, 2008
There are perils and perks to growing up listening to Dr. Demento and Dr. Ruth every Sunday night in high school. Eric Schwartz's razor sharp, adults-mostly, on-the-spot wit combined with his exceptional musicality have made him a stand-out performer when appearing on the Comedy Central Stage (in Sit'n Spin); with comedy masters like Jim Norton, Rich Vos, Bobby Slayton and Jim Florentine on "The Bad Boys of Comedy;" at clubs (The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Ice House), on the radio (Howard Stern 100, NPR's All Things Considered, Doctor Demento, and Air America), and on the web, where his edgy, political YouTube videos chalk up millions of hits and garner him illicit proposals from all corners of the globe.
Since arriving recently in Los Angeles from NYC, Eric's talents as a first-rate composer / lyricist have quickly been noticed and employed. He composed the theme song for Harrison On The Edge, a liberal radio talk show in Los Angeles, wrote and performed the theme song, "Alcohol," for the inaugural episode of "A Pretty Good Show" at the Vanguard in Los Angeles, hosted by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development, Golden Girls), and wrote for Eliza Jane Schneider (South Park, Beakman's World). Eric's song "Clinton Got A Blowjob" recently won first prize in the Comedy / Novelty Category in the 2009 International Songwriting Competition.
