Erik Griffin’s life has changed drastically since he last performed at Hilarities three years ago. Since then, he’s become a regular contributor to the hit TV comedy Workaholics. On the show, he plays cubical co-worker Montez Walker, a friend of three drugged-out party idiots. Montez often interrupts their grand schemes while telling them all about the explicit sexual acts he performs with his wife. Griffin has also released the new comedy album Technical Foul Volume One. “I’ve always wanted to do a stand up album,” he says of Technical Foul. “When I was younger, that was the thing; you would listen to people’s CDs. Technology has changed all of that but I still always wanted to make one.” Indie/punk label SideOneDummy Records put it out, making it the label’s first comedy album. Griffin says punk and comedy actually have a lot in common. “Musicians and comics live the same kind of lifestyle, just traveling place to place, struggling and trying to make it,” he says. “And the fans of punk rock music are very much Workaholics fans. I went to the Warped Tour a while ago and all the fans were very interactive and supportive. I thought it was an easy cross over.” Griffin performs tonight at 8, and performances continue through the weekend. Tickets are $18-$20. (William Hoffman)
