Eric Lampaert (Lamb Pear)

Eric Lampaert is a comedian, actor, writer, director, Lego enthusiast, wannabe astrophysicist, and he’s owned by a cat named Debbie.

You may have seen him in various places, maybe live on stage, in movies, on BBC, HBO, Netflix, Comedy Central, or maybe outside your bedroom window when the moon is full, you might just see his gargantuan glistening gums sparkle in the darkness.

He studied at École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris & Theatre Arts at Middlesex University in London, so he can recite Shakespeare in two languages, but he can’t change a tyre.

Eric has performed stand up around the world (Unless you’re a Flat Earther and then, get off this website and watch literally any video from the International Space Station. Here, let me help you: Live from the ISS

He’s been at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, the Johannesburg Comedy Festival, several solo shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, he has supported Eddie Izzard (in English and French), performed a theatre run of his solo show in London & Paris, and won the ComediHa Best International Comedian Award in Quebec, so when you tweet him saying he isn’t funny, he doesn’t care.

And co-starred in motion picture Moonwalkers (alongside Rupert Grint and Ron Perlman), in Luc Besson’s film Valerian & The City of a Thousand Planets and his upcoming one, Anna, starring Helen Mirren, Cillian Murphy & more).

“He makes it look so easy but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch.” – DAILY EXPRESS

“Quirky with an eye for the absurd and a couple of near-Izzardian flourishes… Energy is such that it’s almost osmotic.” – THE STAGE
