Eric Deskin is a NYC and LA based actor and comedian. TV credits include frequent appearances in sketches on Jimmy Kimmel Live! as well as episodes of "Raising Hope" on Fox, "Elementary" on CBS, and HBO's "Bored to Death". Recent film credits include "The Longest Week" opposite Jason Bateman and "Excuse Me for Living" opposite Wayne Knight. He has also appeared in many national and regional commercials and print campaigns including those for Nexium, Apple, Cablevision, British Airways and Post Cereal.
As a comic, he appears at comedy clubs, theaters and other venues around the country and is a regular at the Broadway Comedy Club and Dangerfield's in NYC. His comedy has been described by "Back Stage" as "edgy, observant and funny . . . the sort of brainy observations you wish you'd thought of . . . ." When in Los Angeles, he performs long form improv around town with his team The Jaywalkers.
A New York native, Eric is a former corporate attorney having "practiced" at one of New York's oldest and most venerated, and now defunct, white-shoe law firms. Though that firm's demise was not really his fault, ask him for legal advice at your own peril. A hockey fanatic, he once dreamed of playing in the NHL, but realized his lack of size and skill might be a hindrance. Nonetheless, he still enjoys mixing it up on the ice regularly and once scored a goal on a one-timer off a pass from Academy Award winning actor Tim Robbins.
