Eric Drysdale (pictured, left) is a man of many talents not the least of which is the writing of materials suitable for inclusion in the category of televised comedy/variety. On Thursday, December 18th Eric and his co-scribes ended their long run writing for The Colbert Report on Comedy Central and with any luck he’ll will soon be employed at the network that for some odd reason has a weird eye as its logo. Eric’s life in comedy began at an early age. He seemed destined for creating comedy in one form or another and he’s fortunately been able to test those waters in many forms. From movies shot on film as a teenager to an actual paid comedy writing job for a Canadian TV show just one year out of high school to a European “walkabout” to The Daily Show and then to Colbert, Eric’s journey has been long, exciting and fruitful. And now he’s a guest on Writers’ Bloc! Talk about moving up!! I’m happy to have him as a friend and thrilled to have him as a guest on the podcast. You’re going to like what you hear.
