Eric J. Krug is a comedian who got his start telling “jokes” in the city of Austin, Texas. He spent his childhood moving from city to city across the Midwest: Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Texas, Kansas. Eric’s upbringing is much like his act – empty and boring. After barely graduating High School, Eric barely attended college, and after finally running out of options, he joined the military in 2002. Eric managed to do nothing heroic nor manly during his four-year term even after he went to a war zone and (much to everyone’s disappointment) returned home safely. In addition to appearing at the SXSW Festival, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham, Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, and getting boo’d off the stage in Wales (true story) – Eric has also won the nationally recognized Funniest Person In Austin contest after all the talented comedians in Austin had moved. Which only serves to remind us that patience is a virtue, especially when you suck.
