Eric Williams is a multifaceted actor, comedian, and podcast host hailing from Los Angeles. With an impressive track record that includes performing in the New York Comedy Festival, starring in BET’s sketch comedy show “50 Central,” appearing in multiple national commercials, and even taking on the iconic role of Buddy the Elf in the Broadway tour of “Elf the Musical,” Eric’s comedic range knows no bounds. And yes, he’s Jewish! His top 100 comedy podcast, “That’s A Gay Ass Podcast,” has featured a star-studded lineup of guests, including Bowen Yang (SNL), Peppermint (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Joel Kim Booster (NBC), and Matt Rogers (Las Culturistas), among others. Be sure to check out the podcast and catch the live show in LA. This queer comedy podcast playfully asks, “Whose fault is it that you’re gay?” and wonders why our straight friends are so obsessed with us. Eric dives deep into delightful conversations with his queer friends and straight allies, exploring the moments that “gayed” them and the shared traumas that bind them all together. The result is an honest, hilarious, and undeniably Gay Ass Podcast.
