Comedian Erica Rhodes first pursued a career in acting, where she wound up doing a lot of web series and horror films. Eventually she sought new representation. Looking to expand her career, her new manager suggested she try standup, which she eventually did to much success. A top headliner today, Rhodes is sometimes compared to Maria Bamford. Though vocally the two are similar, her comedy is much different, focusing on more traditional set-up/punchline material inspired by her life and observing others.
