Yes...that IS Drew Barrymore
This Sh** Is ____ is Erica's debut web series which she wrote, produced, co-directed and starred in. WHEW!
Themes from the series include working class, gender non-conforming, depression, and good ole' fashioned sketch comedy.
The hauntingly comedic, one-woman show STAY FUNNY. STAY SCARED premiered live at Under St. Marks in Summer 2022.
The show has since been performed at Austin Sketch Fest, The PIT's Solocom and Brooklyn Comedy Collective.
The show was also accepted into the Rise Comedy Fest but, due to a gnarly knee injury, Erica was not able to attend.
"Erica Diederich (Character's Welcome Digital, Comedy Central Digital) was an exceptionally terrified baby child. Then one day, everything changed. She now watches movies like 'The Conjuring' and 'It' for fun. Come watch her half-hour exploration of all things horror, laugh at some spooky themed characters and be a part in discovering how to overcome the terror within."
Erica stars alongside a stellar cast in the award-winning short film ‘Farmer Ed’, directed by Azwan Badruzaman. The film is playing at numerous festivals this season including LA Shorts and Holly Shorts, Chattanooga Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) and the Katra Film Series in NYC.
Erica regularly performs with her all female and non-binary NYC sketch and production team Wilburn both on stage and online.
We are hard at work on our first feature film 'Wrasslin'.
Production will begin Spring 2024
