Erin Mohr is a transgender stand-up comedian who has been seen in The Last Open Mic at the End of the World on Adult Swim and Max. She performs all over L.A. and has also performed in the Tim Northern Comedy Festival in Louiseville, Riot Grrrl Festival in Los Angeles and was part of the "Best of the Fest" in the Burbank Comedy Festival. She has graced the stages of The Comedy Store, Flappers Comedy Club and The Hollywood Improv.
In 2016 Erin was Aaron; a married man living in Seattle working in a job she didn't love. Finally confronting lifelong depression and suicidal ideation, she embraced the journey to discover her true self. After a lifetime in the closet, Erin moved to the stage to share her story with others through the transformative work of stand-up comedy.
Erin continues to perform at various clubs and venues throughout Los Angeles. She is also working on her first stand-up special which, if all goes well, will be banned in several southern states here in the good ol’ US of A.
