Erik Dersch’s lifelong, and semi-pathologic need to be the center of attention led him into a dysfunctional relationship with stand-up comedy starting in 1999. Erik and Comedy have been on again/off again ever since, as he occasionally cheated on her with other interests like “employment” and a “steady paycheck.” Still, Erik has always come crawling back to comedy’s sweet bosom, letting her walk all over him, and alienating his friends as they make rendezvous at clubs all over the Midwest.
