Erik Griffin, a "first-generation American-born comedian/actor," has honed his skills on comedy circuit hot spots -- from the Just for Laughs festival and the "Comics Unleashed" TV special to working with Lewis Black and appearing as a guest star on the TNT show "Franklin & Bash." But Griffin's recent popularity is for his role as Montez on Comedy Central's "Workaholics."
Why go: Griffin makes bro-comedy without the obnoxious side effects.
Reconsider: You don't get the humor in "Workaholics."
