Eric DaSilva is best known for headlining a sold out show at the Backstage Fillmore Theater in Miami Beach, performing in Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, The Norfolk Comedy Festival and his one-hour comedy album, Adorably Offensive.
Born in Queens, NY and raised in Miami, FL, Eric began his comedy career while attending college in Miami. After winning several comedy competitions he moved to New York to continue his stand-up career. Eric quickly made appearances on Comedy Time Network, featured on Hulu, headlined the NYC Annual Brazilian Day Comedy Showcase and his first album can be heard on Pandora radio.
Eric has also wrapped up his second comedy album, Not A Beautiful Mind. Shot and filmed in Miami at the famous Artistic Vibes Studio to a sold out crowd, and due out in 2015. Eric can be seen touring the country performing his brand of comedy at Comedy Clubs, Colleges and Casinos. Eric also co-hosts on Bad Dads Podcast on the Artistic Vibes Podcast Network. DaSilva is in the midst of getting ready for a feature showcase at the Fillmore, this Saturday, which will be recorded and later released as a DVD called Not a Beautiful Mind. The name alludes to the comedic shift that DaSilva has made over his comedic career, and self-realizations made mainly due to his life as a father.
Eric was finding his comedy voice, but it wasn’t until he had his first kid that DaSilva felt the reception change. “I find the beauty in failure,” “I always say, you haven’t lived life until you’ve had a dream that’s died.” He came back to Miami this past August, mainly for family reasons. After having a second child with his girlfriend, he wanted her to have support while he traveled the country. He’s been able to pursue his comedy even further, headlining a bunch of shows, being featured on local podcasts, and consistently touring. Not a Beautiful Mind came together almost by chance, born from a previous showcase during the South Beach Comedy Festival arranged by South Florida comedy promoters Have-Nots Comedy.
