ErickH My name is Erick Hellwig and I’m a stand-up comedian, writer and actor based in Los Angeles.

I started comedy in NYC performing in repertory at The PIT, studying with The Second City and UCB, and doing stand-up. You may have seen me in Greatest Party Story Ever (MTV), Truth or Dare (MTV Other), Brain Games (Nat Geo), new media projects & commercials.  I’ve done stand-up for years in festivals, clubs & bars across the country and have written for Money From Strangers (MTV) and Funny or Die. I wrote, produced and starred in the half hour comedy pilot Death Lives. I’m also the oldest of six, 1/4 Mexican and I was in a new school every year from K-8th grade.

Should I say the Mexican thing? Maybe I’ll say I’m a Libra?  We’re off the rails.

Come see my shows, upcoming performances are listed in the tab to the right. We’ll chat in person.
