Bio // Raised in San Jose, California Eric Toms began his career when his sketch comedy troupe pitched and sold their late night sketch show to a local TV channel. Eric immediately dropped out of college and threw himself into the experience, taking on the role of head writer, performer, and video producer. Making the leap to stand-up comedy Eric traveled the world and by 25 had already worked with some of his comedy heroes, such as Kevin Pollak, Norm Macdonald, Lewis Black, Tracy Morgan and Bobby Slayton.

In 2008, Toms was scouted and hired to host the comedy clip show Reality Binge on Fox. Working on Reality Binge later led to a guest appearance on Good Day LA and Last Comic Standing. Shortly after, show runner and fellow comedian, Steve Marmel, asked Eric to guest star as Gilroy Smith in Disney's Sonny With a Chance season 1 finale "Sonny: So Far" staring along side Demi Lovato.

Since then Eric’s writing has won recognition with The Academy of Arts and Sciences and The Austin Screenwriting Festival, and he has starred in independent feature films like disOrientation in which Eric was nominated for the Jury Award at the New Haven Film Festival. Eric has also written commercial campaigns for brands such as 7-11, Netflix, and Cholula Hot Sauce.

    On November 10th an animal became trapped in the vent pipe above my stove. This is the true story of the two brave men tasked with its rescue. There were no survivors.

    Last night I got the opportunity to watch one of my favorite comedies on the big screen.  Its title is “Withnail & I” and if you haven’t seen it then stop reading this, go watch it, then come back and send me money.

    It is unique in the regards that there are no jokes in this “comedy” but rather there are extremely bittersweet situations that most people can identify with.  The artsy fartsy way to say it is that the protagonist and antagonist are friends in a dominate/submissive relationship and only when betrayed on the greatest of scales does the protagonist leave and in doing so takes all power away from the antagonist who just drifts off into the ether.

    The non-douche way of saying that is at some point in our lives almost all of us will be involved in a toxic relationship, and although that person was horrible the person to blame is ourselves for not recognizing it and leaving sooner.  Watching this movie we are uncomfortably laughing at our failings.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that the film has an amazing score, insane characters and is populated by excellent actors.

    I can not recommend this movie enough, and I’m happy to report that another fan of this picture, Mr. Will Arnett, is well spoken, hilarious, and nice enough to take a picture with a dork like me.
