 BIO

A life as a one-man band, award-winning comedian and multi-talented performer began in high school for Eric Haines. After being paid to juggle at a birthday party, he began a career as a variety act that allowed him to avoid getting a real job for over 30 years.  Along the way he joined a circus, worked for theater companies, made a living as a vaudeville-style entertainer, actor, dancer, chicken mascot, singer and stilt walker, and got married and had two children. In college he studied theater, dance and music, finishing with a degree in choreography and performance, and launched into an eight year run as a road comedian, averaging 50,000 miles per year to comedy clubs across the US and Canada.  In 2003, Eric dug deep into  his roots as a variety act, breaking from the comedy team he had been part of to emerge stronger than ever as a solo act, featuring comedy and funny music.

Highlights of his comedy career include having his comedy songs played on the Dr. Demento show and  the Mad Music Archive, opening for Weird Al Yankovic, Neal McCoy and Louie Anderson, and having his comedy songs featured on the Dr. Demento Radio program. He also won the Northwest Comedy Competition, and has been featured in Time Magazine.

QUOTES

“You da bomb” -Weird Al Yankovic 

“Engaging, honest and heartfelt– you will love him.” -Louie Anderson 

“Eric... well... I don't know what the hell he did. He joked, he sang, he jumped around, he molested random people in the audience... I was exhausted just watching him. But the audience thought he was hysterical - and that means he did his job, and exceptionally well, if the laughs were any indicator.” -Ken Pringle, chucklemonkey.com (Las Vegas Comedy Festival review)  

I always know when Eric Haines is performing in Circus of Dreams from backstage (as I am the executive producer). MY STAFF IS ALWAYS LAUGHING. Eric is hilarious and incredibly talented. He is always a favorite at my shows.  -Jenn Wrenn Henry, Executive producer, Circus of Dreams

NEWS

I was invited on stage at the 2016 Big and Rich concert in Fresno, CA, where I played Jambalaya. Thank you to Big and Rich, and especially to Cowboy Troy, who saw me playing outside the arena and had the production team contact me to make me part of the concert. It was very gracious of them.
