He has written and produced a well received article with video content for The Independent.

Invited to take part in the AAA Show in Edinburgh, Erich was spotted as one to watch after receiving 4 star reviews along with a Total Fringe Sellout Award for his 2006 Edinburgh show Brokeback Britain,which was praised for its 'great gags' (The Stage), and described by The List as 'hilariously insightful' and as 'excellent' by Time Out.

Originally from Seattle, Erich joined ranks and became a British citizen and is highly regarded for his humourous and insightful take on living in the UK. As well as writing for The Independent and the Huffington Post, Erich wrote for the weekly satirical 'The Comedy Tree News' which lampoons life in the UK and topical news headlines, which was published in the South African Times, Australian Times and New Zealand Times.
