Hey, comedy fans! Here’s a new thing. Actually, a few new things.

The Comic’s Comic sat down with Erik Griffin this spring before he recorded his first half-hour stand-up comedy special for Comedy Central’s The Half Hour — that debuts tonight at 12:30 a.m. Eastern/Pacific, 11:30 p.m. Central/Mountain. As long as you’re watching Comedy Central, you probably recognize Griffin from his recurring role as Montez on the network’s hit series, Workaholics. I spoke with Griffin about all of that, how he had taken a break from his comedy career, and if he’s ever taken a break from his facial hair. That, plus his first stand-up comedy CD, “Technical Foul: Volume One.”

It’s all in this very special video interview. Roll it!

And here’s a clip from Erik Griffin’s edition of The Half Hour. Up top, he mentions the differences between male fans of Workaholics and female fans from that same show.
