Eric Vinyard joined West End Comedy in Season Three. He is a local performer and occasional stand-up comedian who has been acting on and off stage since the age of 13. He is the founder of the FilmRoasters, a group of smartalecky film buffs who provide live improvisational commentary for some of the cheesiest films ever made. A few of his other specialties include hosting burlesque shows, portraying dead or dying background characters in historical documentaries, and wearing nice suits.
Unable to make a living off of these talents, Eric instead spends most of his time traveling across the state drawing caricatures at various events; birthdays, company picnics, weddings, receptions, conventions, and funerals (www.ericscaricatures.com).
