Eric Burgess was in the improv troupe Stupid Drunk Kids and did sketch comedy and stand-up at the New York Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club and East 23rd Comedy Club. Also in NYC, he attended the School for Film and Television. He graduated locally from Blake High School for the Arts. There he played McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Sheriff Reynolds in BatBoy the Musical, Zeus in Metamorphoses and he wrote, directed and starred in his own play Red Paint. He loves kids and can’t wait to turn 80. He’d like to clarify that his favorite color is blue, not pink.
