About
Eric Lyden is one of Gigmasters highest rated and reviewed comedians. Seriously. Stop reading this bio and look at his actual reviews from actual people who booked Eric. Ok good. Please continue...

Eric Lyden is that sarcastic best friend we all have and need in our life. With the ultimate and unmistakable goal of getting us to laugh about the things that are hard to laugh about, including ourselves, he achieves and exceeds his goal in every performance by delivering one well-crafted hysterically cathartic punch line after another.
Armed with an affection for honesty in his writing and a trenchant charm in his delivery Lyden gives each member of every audience he stares down someone we can relate to and consider as “one of our own.”

To date Eric's credits include Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen and Gotham Comedy Live in NYC. And several of Eric's spot on celebrity impressions can be heard on TV and radio nationwide.

The Entertainment Committee for our annual banquet couldn’t have been happier with Eric Lyden. From our initial contact with Eric through the completion of the show, Eric was very professional, very courteous, and extremely funny! Our crowd enjoyed and related to Eric’s personal life experiences like his marriage, his childhood, and his life on the road performing at different gigs. He had our group in stitches for a full hour! We were completely satisfied with Eric’s performance and highly recommend Eric for your next event!

Eric did a beautiful job at our event!! He not only was hysterical but he also was very interactive and conversational with the guests at the show. They loved him and I strongly recommend him for social events as well as corporate events!! Take a moment away from the seriousness of life and laugh hysterically with Eric!! Thank you for making my event a success!

Eric Lyden was an absolute hit! There was a small miscommunication about the usage of a sound system but Eric adjusted. He actually picked up the sound system just before showtime. He really went the extra mile! He is absolutely funny and takes his job very seriously.

It was a corporate event for an IT Consulting firm comprising of 20+ people. Even without a Microphone, Eric was able to drive the crowd crazy with perfect jokes. The crowd was constantly laughing throughout the performance. Eric went ON and ON for an hour without even a break and at the end of the show everybody felt the need to massage their jaws :) Highly recommended comedian, very accommodative and fantastic person! Go for it and you won't be disappointed in him.

Eric Lyden is very professional and accommodating. He really wanted to make our event successful and went through great lengths to do so. He did some research on our ancient and honorable fraternity and when he heard that we would be holding an open house he asked if he could attend. We met him and found him to be very delightful. He took notes and prepared for our event to honor 2 members one for 50yrs and the other for 70yrs. He informed us that he would arrive an hour early and put us at ease. He gathered key details for our 2 honorees and included them during his performance. All members present from 24 to 96 years old had a memorable time. Bravo!!!

Eric made my fathers 70th birthday party an absolute success... Very funny and was able to adjust to the crowd without missing a beat. He made it a priority to learn about the guest of honor and was able to seamlessly incorporate all of his learnings into the act. At no time was I concerned as to whether or not he'd be a hit... I could tell immediately from our multiple conversations leading up to the event that he had a talent which clearly puts him at the top of the pack. If you're looking for a stress free process and LOTS of laughs - I would highly, highly recommend using Eric..

Eric was hired to perform at a party, but the show was delayed. He was very accommodating and his demeanor showed no hint of the excessive delay. Routine was well prepared including material about the guest of honor as well as impromptu material. The show was hilarious, classy and tasteful; exactly what I requested. Many of our guests reached out to us days after the event to rave about Eric as the highlight. We were very pleased with Eric in every way: flexibility, professionalism, appearance, friendliness, punctuality & humor. It was such a pleasure to deal with Eric and I highly recommend him for parties, fundraisers or any event when you want a great comedian!

Wow! What a fantastic evening we had at our annual fundraising event and I have to tip my hat to Eric for making it such a wonderful and memorable event! Eric was charismatic and charming and oh so funny! As chairperson for this event I continuously scanned the crowd and all I saw was smiles and laughter! The feedback was incredible and the attendees of the evening were very happy with the wit humor that was truly all Eric! We are looking forward to booking Eric again for future events!
