Eric Blake has taken this challenge to heart, expanding his material beyond the African-American lens, and identifying with many other cultures and experiences.

Furthermore, Blake performed as the headliner for the comedy hit entitled War On Comedy, which aired on HBO and has recently been released on video. Eric’s acclaimed notoriety led HBO to choose him among thousands to film a documentary on the eight most up and coming comedians in the country, which is scheduled to air in the fall of 2006. In addition, he has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and is a regular at The Improv in Hollywood.
