Erin Harkes has only been on the comedy circuit for five years, but her dry wit and sarcasm coupled with audience rapport has made her very successful in a short amount of time. She’s won local contests and performed all over New York State and beyond. In 2014-16 she was voted Albany’s Best Local Comedian by Metroland. (local arts and entertainment magazine)
She performs at Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club and The Stand in NYC, the Comedy Works in Albany, Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, Funny Bone in Syracuse, Albany and Hartford and SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto (three years running). In 2016 she was accepted to perform at the Boston Comedy Festival and appeared on two episodes of Season 3 of Laughs TV. She also produces her own shows on a monthly basis featuring local and nationally touring comedians.
She finds that her musical career (that spans well over a decade) has prepared her for any and all stage settings and she performs with the ease and comfort of a comedic veteran.
