Bend Comedy Presents at Looking Glass Imports & Cafe:
– ERIK ESCOBAR – @erikescobar
Described as hilariously witty by most and “demented” by his 4th grade teacher, Erik Escobar is a comic that performs all throughout the US at clubs, colleges, and festivals both independently, as a part of the Almost Asian Comedy Tour, and opening for acts such as WWE’s Rob Van Dam and Seinfeld’s Jerry Seinfeld. Credits include NBC’s Last Comic Standing, VH1’s Walk of Shame Shuttle, Buzzfeed, and the upcoming documentary Where Have You Gone, Lou Dimaggio? You can also check out his Spokane, Washington based upcoming series, Content, at Instagram.com/enjoyCONTENT. His quick delivery and awkward edginess has made him a rising act you will not want to miss. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California with his dog, Rancor, and can be seen (most)every Friday at LA’s The Improv Space Theatre with his improv team, Bankroll, or throughout the country at comedy clubs and in the audience at independent wrestling promotions.
– THEO MANHATTAN –
Theo Manhattan’s comedy is described as “darkly intellectual”. He is the producer of I’m Burger Podcast and has played over 200 shows since starting in 2015. He has opened for Joey Diaz, Ian Edwards, Brian Kiley, Shaun Weiss, and Joey Gaynor, among others. He is animated and high energy and is also mistaken as Kenny G more times than you can imagine.
